As Kim Henkel posted elsewhere, there's nothing special to do,
however, the length of many filenames do, indeed!, exceed the available space
of the default display mode (indicated by a triangle right after the
(truncated) filename).
To change this temporarily (i.e. for the current session), hit ALT-F ("File
display") from the file window as many times until just the filenames are
shown in full length.
To make ZTree to use that display mode as default, call the configuration
program (ALT-F10 from the Directory window) and change item "A" to "Longnames".
That's it!

Yes, it does *appear" to be a DOS application, although in fact ZTree is a
true 32bit Windows95/NT one. Windows95/NT does treat *all* programs running
in pure text-mode like this; don't worry about, it actually doesn't cause any shortcomings!
