Windows 10: Rename files make cursor position move left instead of to start

    Rename files make cursor position move left instead of to start


    I have noticed in Windows 10 in file explorer if I highlight then hit F2 then press the left arrow key the cursor shoots to the start of the file name.

    In Windows 7 in file explorer if I highlight a file and hit F2 then press the left arrow key, the cursor moves over one position from the end of the file name.

    This has made renaming files very difficult and was much easier before.

    1. Is this a windows 10 only issue?
    2. Is there anyway to enable the behavior in Windows 7 when renaming files?
    3. Is there a way to use a win 7 file explorer in windows 10 and if so does it use the cursor behavior when renaming like in windows 7 or win10?

    :)

  2. Desktopini created instead of a folder renaming

    Every time I try to rename a folder on my PC (Windows 10 Pro), instead of renaming the file, it creates a desktop.ini folder, and inside of it is the following information

    [.ShellClassInfo]

    LocalizedResourceName=

    After LocalizedResourceName= is the name of the folder that I renamed it to. So if it was Folder1 and I rename it to Folder2, that file will say:

    [.ShellClassInfo]

    LocalizedResourceName=Folder2

    ... but the actual foldername will still be Folder1

    Searching the Internet lists a bunch of random suggestions, none of which work. Anyone know why this happens? I'm pretty close to abandoning File Explorer, as it seems to be the cause of this issue.

  3. Trouble renaming photos and files

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    - Are you using Photo app to rename the photos?

    - Did you try renaming the photos directly from File explorer?

    - Do you get any message?



    I suggest you to rename photos from File Explorer and check if it helps:

    Follow the steps to rename photo from File Explorer:

    1. Right click on the start menu and select File Explorer.

    2. Click on pictures present on the left side of the page.

    3. Right on the picture you want to rename and select the option rename.



    Help us with more information to assist you further.
