    Hi @PriSim

    Is your folder view set to Small Icons?

    There is a bug in Windows FCU preventing users from renaming files and folders in "Small Icons" view. My computer has the same issue, however it is not a problem for me as I use the "Details" view for all the folders on my computer.
    Wow !
    You are genius yes it is working now every where under details folder view.
    So this means there is bug in release ? my user profile is not corrupted. am i right ?

    @PriSim Your user profile is not corrupted. The file/folder rename issue is definitely a bug in Windows.

    I'm glad that you are happy.

    I did call the Microsoft today in morning , and after making many changes like permissions etc , they ask me to add anew user , and on new user profile , rename was working even with small icons view, then they told me its about my user file corruption due to unnecessary settings
    That's why , i was asking about profile repairing method, i have to admit their point for once, as everything was fine under new user profile.

    @PriSim

    Once your PC/device has digital license it will always activate.

    Always perform a system backup on a regular basis, however, it will do you no good to backup now since your system is corrupt, although you want to backup all of your important files before starting repairs. I simply copy/paste folders/files to a USB thumb drive or you can use a DVD. Very important files I backup on two drives. That way if need be I can use that drive in another PC. Before installing software I make a restore point as explained below.

    For a total system backup I use Windows in-house backup: Create Windows Backup in Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    Some members use Macrium Reflect free: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect Backup Restore Tutorials

    There's a few ways to go about repairing.

    To repair I suggest this first: Run Startup Repair in Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    If that doesn't work, this is the least evasive recovery option using option one: Reset Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    Sometimes, IMO, upgrades drag along broken code, so sometimes I'll clean install. If you choose this in the future we can show you how.

    In the future:
