Any one have any idea how to do this?

I wanted to add more text then normal to a device I own, because it doesn't give me enough space for titles.

Not too clear on the question you are asking, what type of USB device is this?

When you go to "My Computer", and right click on a USB drive, and you go to properties, and there is the title for it, I want the ability to INCREASE the amount of text in the title. Any way to do that?

That's better :thumbsup:
I assume you want to SEE more.
It has nothing to do with USB. It's a general design flaw.
Whoever designs those tiny windows did it all wrong in most places because they don't allow resizing. About the only way I know how to do it, is to put the cursor on the path and scroll over to the right till I can see what's going on. You can do that on the white area up top as well as on the Location line which is on the grey area.

If you really want to INCREASE the number of letters, and you're really doing it when you click the USB drive, I read it as you want to RENAME the drive to something else and longer. That you can do in the white box on the Properties of the USB drive or any drive for that matter.

So you are actually meaning renaming the device?

There is a limit to it and I don't think there is a workaround. Just curious what for you want the name to be that long.
