Windows 7: How to rename a folder in WinExps left tree view by slow double click?

How to rename a folder in WinExps left tree view by slow double click?

In former WinXP I could slowly (!) double click on a folder name on the left side of WinExplorer in the tree view. The folder name could then be renamed.

In new Windows 7 the slow double click trick does not work any more.
Ok, I could select "rename" from the context menu.
However I prefer the slow double click way.

Is there a way to enable this feature in Windows 7 as well?

Have a read of this Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item

It may be a solution if not just press F2 on a folder to rename
