Cli Shortening Filenames

Just wondering why the Cli shortens file names over to 32 charaters long,even though it shows the full file name when you open a folder from the desktop to access it ?

When showing a directories contents with dir it shortens the filenames, but with list it doesn't. If that is what you mean, simply use list instead of dir

As for the why and how, I don't have a clue
