    In File Explorer, how do I disable Backspace from changing the folder.


    In Windows 10, in File Explorer, when I'm working on naming files, because the backspace key is right next to the Enter key, I often hit it accidentally and it takes me to the previous folder. Please tell me how to disable this.

    :)
     

  2. Files remain in original folder after moving them to new folder in file explorer

    Hi,

    The issue that you’ve encountered regarding the File Explorer may be caused by some configuration or files mismatched. To sort out your concern, we suggest that you reset the folder settings from the
    Folder Options. This will reboot the folder’s preferences to its default state and remove any possible software conflict. To do this, you may follow these steps:

    • Click Start, type File Explorer, and press
      Enter
      .
    • On the File Explorer window, click the View tab > Options > Change folder and search options > View.
    • Under the Folder views section, click Reset Folders, and then select
      Yes to confirm.
    • Once you’re done, click OK, and then check if the issue persists.

    Note: This process will remove the list of files that you recently opened.


    Let us know if the suggestion works for you.
