Those are the conversation window tabs, and no you can't manually control the tabs size. Why do you want to do that?

Right, I want to expand the conversation window tabs..because sometimes I can't see the full screenname or Alias of the person, and I need to

Can you give me an example of when/why you need this? Why do you need to see the full name/alias in the tab? Is the issue that the tab name shortening leaves you with ambiguous tab titles? Is switching to the tab to see the full name/alias not enough (either in the infopane or the message area)?

Not sure what other information I can provide...basically sometimes I would just like to see their full alias's or screennames on the tabs..even if I am not in the selected tab

Thanks

Bumping up this relic.

I'd say go with a scroll line that lets people resize at will, in the same way groups are handled.

If you place the mouse over the name, a tooltip expands to the full name of the contact.

Can you explain why that is not enough?

I think this feature will over complicate the already over-complicated conversation window with no apparent benefit.
