Ha! This would be great! :-D

Tooltips for file names in the file panes or in the search window are
not available as far as I know. :-( This feature was requested in the
past already, but up to know I had no time to find out how this can be
implemented. But it is already on my ToDo list :)

This is possible via quick-search: (see Options -> General -> Quick
search). So if you activated the first radio button for example, hit
Alt+Ctrl+letter and a quick search text field will open in which you
can search for a file. Searching in this field works with "*" for any
letter as well, i.e. if you have a file like abcdef.jpg, you can find
it via "*def" in the search result window.
