  1. Folder rename prompt closes automatically.


    Hi all,

    I'm using a custom built desktop with Windows 10 Pro. I'm having issues when I rename a folder. It closes the rename prompt on its own in about 2-3 seconds after I've clicked rename. How do I fix this? Also this may not be related but a folder with a lot of images 50+ keeps refreshing on its own and takes me to the 1st picture in the folder every five seconds and hence I can't scroll down using mouse since it refreshes and takes me to the top. Anyone else facing these issues?

    Specs:
    Intel i7 - 4790K @ 4.00GHz
    16GB Ram
    64 Bit OS
    nVidia GTX 760

    :)
