    how can i stop file explorer refreshing when i make a new folder?

    Hi i hope someone can help me, ive been trying different phrases for days tryin to find an answer,
    im running win 10 pro 32 and the way i have file explorer set up is in List view in name order,
    the problem i have is because there are soo many folders when i right click and copy a name ( ie Tech Reports v23) then right click and make a new folder, that "new folder" is thrown into alphabetical order before i can paste the name in ,, usually as i try ive clicked in an empty location meaning i have to go through the routine of right click then rename then paste,, not fun when you have between 20 to 40 a day to do,,

    so can anyone please help me in switching off the refresh while im working in that folder so it only refreshes when i manually right click once ive finished working

    many thanx in advance

    Hi, If you use the button (3rd right on title bar) to create the new folder, your cursor ends up in the name field of the new folder.

    On the other hand, if I rt click empty space and create a new folder, what happens in mine is that the New Folder appears in the middle of the pane once it is created.
    (Using list view in alpha order)
    In Details view, in alpha order, it appears at the top of the list as displayed in explorer once I've created it.
    But in neither of these cases does the cursor end up in the name field, and I have to right click to rename it.

    Are you expecting that when you create the folder you should be prompted for its name?
    Unfortunately that's not how it seems to work from a rt click new folder create. A bit messy.

    XYplorer behaves as I think you wish: the cursor is left in 'New Folder' in the newly created folder, ready for you to rename it.
    Some here use the free version, so you might consider using an alternative file manager.
