Back in WinXP, once a folder is selected, I could left-click on it a second
time in the navigation pane (left pane of Windows Explorer) to edit the folder
name. In Win7, this feature is removed. To edit a folder name on the
navigation pane, I must right-click and select 'Rename', which is an annoyance
because the context menu is now so big.
P.S. Thanks for the great program! I found it yesterday after considering
CSMenu and Vista Start Menu. Keep up the good work.
How about F2? F2 still works in the navigation pane.
I looked at the tree control documentation and it looks like there is no
official way to DISABLE the one-click renaming. So Explorer must go out of its
way to get the current behavior, which makes me believe that it was done
deliberately. Working against such deliberate code can be very tricky and
And like xpclient said, since you are renaming, your hands must be on the
keyboard to type the new name anyway. So just press F2 :)
Thank you for looking into this so quickly.
I didn't know about F2. My initial impression is that it is better than the
context menu, but still less than ideal because F2 selects the entire folder
name for renaming. After pressing F2, I must go back to the mouse to re-
position the cursor, then back to the keyboard again to type. Anyway, I can
probably live with it. :-)
Keep up the good work!
I tried this in XP, and when I click on an already selected folder the whole
folder name is selected, just like F2 or Rename from the menu. There is no
Well one-click-renaming works only if the classic folder view for the
navigation pane is selected in WinXP.
I'm missing this in Win7, too, therefore I second this request!
