Windows 10: File Explorer Rename - name select delay interrupts edit

    File Explorer Rename - name select delay interrupts edit


    Hi,
    When renaming a file in File Explorer I am frequently, but not always, stymied by the system re-selecting the entire filename whilst I am in the midst of editing it. It occurs anytime from 1-2s after I start editing up to 10s or more. I typically am using the back arrow to move to the point I am editing, and Shift+arrow to select text. It may happen before or after I have used Shift+arrow to select text.
    It's frustrating because I have to essentially anticipate the system possibly reselecting the whole filename, and if it does, restart my edit again.
    Has anyone else experienced this issue, and if so, is there a fix?

    Hi James,
    I have the same issue and solved it by deacivating Windows media features inclusive media player. I use vlc anyway, so this had no negative impact for me.
