|I would like to start my post over and explain my question more clearly. In my original post I mentioned the Left Pane called by some the Files and Folders Windows. I miss-copied the names from Wikipedia because I realized that had to be incorrect because only folders are displayed in the Left Pane. I also mentioned renaming files and folders in both panes which would be impossible because the Left Pane displays only folders. I apologize for sounding like an idiot. I have been told I have an IQ of at least 23 1/2.|
So starting over this is my question:
On my laptop with XP-PRO SP2 installed I can rename in BOTH Left and Right Windows Explorer Panes by clicking twice slowly on the file or folder name (not the icon). However on both desktop PCs (XP-PRO SP2 on one and XP-PRO SP3 on the other), This renaming method works ONLY in the Right Windows Explorer Pane.
I really like this renaming method and would like to be able to use this method in both Windows Explorer panes on all my computers.
1. I am aware of renaming using F2 or the Contex Menu. So please please don't ask me "why not use ...." Just rember the "I really like this renaming method" I mention above.
2. It is not a mouse clicking speed setting issue. I can rename in the Windows Explorer Right Pane on all three computers
My one and only goal here is to enable this renaming method in the Windows Explorer Left Pane on every computer in the world...or maybe just my two desktops
Is there a Registry modification or a setting somewhere I could change on my two desktops to allow me to rename in the left pane by clicking the name twice. I am comfortable making Registry modifications and I am careful to make backups of the Registry keys and values before changing them. I have searched the internet using Google but have been unable to find the answer. I would greatly appreciate any information on this subject. Thanks.
