I use Word 2003 with XP.

From the main menu I click (for example) "File" and a drop down box appears with menu sub options. This box is far too narrow for my purposes and trims off end of long recent file names and even some menu options. How can I make this drop down box an inch or two wider? Nothing in Customize seems to fit this problem and I can't find anything on line.

I notice that each of the top level menu boxes is a slightly different width. Surely it must be possible to adjust the sizes somehow?
