change width of folder navigation left sidebar

Can I change the width of the left sidebar in the web app? I have folders in my favourites with long names and I would like to see the full name of the folder in the sidebar.

Hi @shaded,

 

Welcome to the Box Community and thanks for your first post in the forum!

 

The ability to expand the width of the left navigation menu is currently not possible in the WebApp. As a workaround, simply hover your cursor to the items listed under Favorites to see the full name of the contents you marked under this label.

I have this problem and read the solution too and would prefer to have the sidebar wider. The solution is not as helpful as having a wider sidebar because I have to check each link to see which one I need (when multiple files that start with the same three words, for example)

I would also like to have a solution for this, specially because when you are added to BOX folders by different people with so strange names it is not easy to manage them and actually the are is really small
