Move the file? It's because the directory is deep in the HD. Move the file out to your basic C:/ and your'll get your C:/f.txt

All you'd be doing is recalling the file from a more broad area in the HD so you wouldn't have to dig into huge filenames. Why do you want to do this anyway? If you have to type that filename over again, just ctl C and ctl V it. Anyway, copy it in your C:/ dir instead of your documents and settings and all that other stuff. Then recall it from that area. I hope that answered your question though I doubt it. It seems a little to simple of an answer. SO let me know

Oh

forget what I just typed. I'll do some more research. I mean, you can always do it that way and it would be a lot simpler than trying to convert. let me get back to you
