    can't change desktop icon names


    Whenever I try to change the name of desktop icons, it asks for admin rights (I have them, only user on Windows, admin), I give it and then the whole computer just hangs until I restart explorer.exe from Task Manager.
    Anyone else having the same problem? Any solution or workaround?

    In build 10041 it was somehow resolved.
