, why you decided that sebnunes
needs batch renaming?
Your advice is totally off here. sebnunes
, this behavior was introduced in Vista and as far as I know (and googling confirms that) it is not possible to change it back to XP-style without 3rd party software.
Myself, after F2 I just press Ctrl+A to select file name with extension.
Also, you can use remapping software like AutoHotkey
If you decide to go with AutoHotkey here is the script for ENGLISH
#IfWinActive ahk_class CabinetWClass
First line should activate script only in Explorer, second line substitutes the F2 key to a series of commands and shortcuts: Right Click - Rename, then Ctrl+A.
To make this script work in other than English Windows version you need to change letter m
in the code to letter you have underscored in the word "Rename" in your language.
