    After Update , Folder/File Rename issue


    Hello,

    My windows 10 just got an update for v1709,
    after that,
    Got an issue , Rename folder/file command is not working in any drive (HDD also USB) , but on desktop/userfolder its working fine. i searched google but got no solutions regarding this, everyone is asking about permissions error , in my case even rename box is not appearing against the name, tried right click rename and press f2 also,rename box is not appearing under the icon.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there, @PriSim. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    I wonder if you lost administration rights.

    Check in Settings app > Accounts > Your info > Is yours an Admin account?

    It looks to be a bug. Many are reporting this in 1709. Try this for grins. Restart File Explorer in Task Manager (Ctrl/Shift/Esc). Locate the "Windows Explorer" process under the Processes tab and left-click on it to highlight. In the bottom right click Restart. Does it work until reboot?

    You're welcome. May be a UI bug. I noticed you have the Enterprise edition. Is that correct? If so, are you part of a domain?

    Yes you can if you don't want to roll back to previous edition. You might want to consider that carefully. You may want to roll back and update again. It may solve your context menu problem.

    Another thought is to run SFC to see if that fixes that problem.
