    You can mess with the application-menu directly by modifying the js extension located at:
    /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/apps-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/extension.js

    I had to do this to make the menu bigger for a high DPI screen. It seems some of the size attributes are simply hardcoded in the extension. As a result, I couldn't read any of the application group names as they were truncated after only a few characters.

    Have a look at the _display() function. I ended up tweaking 2 values there:

    this.mainBox.actor.style=('width: 35em;'); -> changed to '45em'
    this.categoriesBox.box.width = 300; -> changed to 600

    You can test your changes by restarting the gnome-shell: ALT+F2, type 'r' and hit <enter>.
