While creating an example for thread "Lockups with TakeCommand v12" I discovered that if I right click on a folder in the Folder pane and select "Rename" I am never prompted to rename the folder; the context menu just disappears upon clicking "Rename".

While creating an example for thread "Lockups with TakeCommand v12" I discovered that if I right click on a folder in the Folder pane and select "Rename" I am never prompted to rename the folder; the context menu just disappears upon clicking "Rename".

TCMD has never supported Rename in the folder view (that context menu is coming from Explorer, not from TCMD), due to some limitations and a serious bug in the underlying Windows code.

But I looked it over again this afternoon, and I think there may be a way to implement it in a future build. I'll need to experiment with it some more to be sure.
