How to "extend" app names on application list

If you open application menu / drawer and if the app names is too long for example "windows app support" it will showed up as "windows app s...", How do I fix that since there's quite enough room for double lines app name?

I'm tired of editing the "usr/share/applications/" so the app names is shorter

For some fun reading:

One user suggested this extension:


If you want you can even decrease text size on Zorin Appearance > Character Type > tweak.

I believe that Gnome, in this case, imposes a 14 character limit on the text. If so, then decreasing the font size won't bypass that limit.
