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, Colin.
