    Cant rename files/folders


    Hi everyone, i've installed W10 x64 today.. In the file explorer I can't rename any file or folder.. F2 not work, right click/rename don't work, and single left click over the name file/folder don't work.. The only that works is right click, properties, and change the name from there.


    From the desktop, all methods works OK, but if i enter in file explorer, not.


    I've read A LOT on the web, folder permissions are right, i'm administrator. Try several things, but nothing seems to work.. I'm thinking roll back to W7, any idea? THANKS!

    You use Local Account or Microsoft Account for sign-in system?

    I have similar problems with rights when i create local account during installation of system, but when during installation i sign-in with microsoft account, all normally.

    If that not trouble for you, you can try reinstall system and make first sign-in with microsoft account.

    Also - you system licensing or cracked? Cracked systems have some troubles with signin-in in microsoft account.

    Oddly enough I was inspired by a post from either here, or at the sevenforums, when I was searching for a fix. This just happened today after the big fall update was installed. Anyway, the other poster said they fixed their problem by disabling slide show. That got me thinking, and long story short, by switching the icon size from "small" to either a bigger size or Tiles I was able to regain the ability to rename files and folders. Though before this I could rename them by using "Properties", and editing the file within that. I'm guessing/hoping someone at Microsoft made a teensie error in the registry and it slipped by. Hopefully it will get fixed with the next update.

    Yeah, at night, after a new installation, several tests, delete my account, generate it again two o three times i realized that the problem is the icons in a type of view.. Dummy error of Microsoft, waiting to fix with next update, but i can now use my W10 Thanks!
