Just reinstalled Win98 recently and now when I open a DOS window and enter the dir command, all file names over the 8.3 format are truncated to look like C:\mydocu~1 etc. It used to display the whole file name spaces and all. Even typing them in changing directories I have to type them in that way. Just an annoyance and wonder if anyone knows how to change it.
