Trying to rename picture folders

Had a problem just start on my computer running Windows 7. I go into computer, E: drive, and My Pictures and view my Photos. As I load then onto my computer on to hard drive they are placed in dated folders. I then right click on folders and put a description of what's in folder. A very few times in the past and several times today I high light folder date and arrow key over until the blue high light goes away. I them space and type what I want to call folder. Well it started today and I can get it to rename folders with out this window opening. Find attached the clip. Thanks

PS I think the pictures are using Windows Photo Gallery.
