“8.3“ File Naming Limit

Although the 8-dot-3 character limit for filenames no longer exists in Windows, it is definitely a part of heritage on DOS platforms and references to it are still present. For example, some commands will still display two name columns in its directory listings – the first column, a shorter name that Windows has made up, like “Progra~1,” to make the user’s file name look like one of these 8.3 format filenames, and the last column, the original long name for the file or folder, like “Program Files”. This limitation is no longer a consideration with the versions of Windows covered by the A+ exam, as they all support long file names (“LFNs”).
