Windows XP Pro SP-3 (in virtual machine; MS VirtualPC 2007)
Comodo Programs Manager (CPM) version 188.8.131.52
I cannot drag the column edges to lengthen the column widths. If that were possible, I could then scroll to the right/left to see more. Or if a bubble popped up that was full length for the path/file when I hover the mouse over the entry then I could see where was the file and what file, or what was the registry key’s path. There’s no export function to let me put it into a text files that I could open. There’s no larger view of the list outside the right-side panel where the tree list is shown. Within the right-side info pane when selecting a program and where the tree list gets displayed, I cannot change the size of the columns to see more within any particular column.
It’s possible CPM is not a DPI-aware app which means what the dev see using the default 96 DPI won’t be what users at 120 DPI will see. Those users will see truncated text in some apps because of fixed positioning of objects. However, the paths (for files or registry keys) would still be too long with a smaller DPI (the default 96).
When you say you see the FULL path, are you saying that a path like "C:\Program Files\Comodo\Comodo Internet Security" (example path only) can actually be seen all at once? What happens if the path is longer than the width of your screen (considering there is also the screen real estate consumed by the window for CPM, left menu pane and leftside programs listing column)?
Attached are screen captures of what I see when using CPM to uninstall a program (MS TweakUI, in this case) which first runs the standard uninstall (using the program’s uninstaller) and then the tree list that follows. For this particular test, there was only 1 remnant registry entry listed in the tree list by CPM after it first ran the standard uninstaller. Notice the FULL path to the registry key is not displayed. It gets truncated with “…”. Even with CPM’s window maximized, the path is still too long. Even if I had a bigger monitor so the Windows screen was larger and CPM’s windows was bigger, paths can easily be longer than the screen width (for the portion of CPM’s window where the the tree is displayed).

CPM_tree_maxwin_leftpanereduced.jpg: CPM window maximized, drag center bar to reduce left pane size (increase right pane size for tree display).
I can click and highlight an entry in the tree. Right-clicking shows no context menu for me to get more info on the entry, like the full path. Double-clicking on an entry does nothing (rather than display a larger window with the info).
So how do YOU get to see the full path to a file or registry key (and its data item(s))?
