Thank you for the reply. Your suggestion didn't work for me, but led
instead to some "try-it-and-see" work and ultimately to the
solution. All I had to do was to change the gnus-group-line-format
variable. I had used `g' - the "Qualified group name". I altered it to
'G' - the "Group name" - which gave a nicely shorted display name.

Thanks again.

Best wishes,
