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 Win7 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 Win7 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
