Windows 7: Unable to rename "New Folder"

There's so much stuff in the Registry that's not documented, afaik, so that I wouldn't discount anything until at least running a malware scan. On my system a Malwarebytes quick scan takes less than 4 minutes.

I don't really think your posts had anything to do with his question, unfortunately. He can change the name of a New Folder fine in Windows Explorer, BUT, when he downloads a file off of the internet, and clicks save as, in THAT box he creates a folder for the file, but cannot rename it THROUGH THE SAVE AS BOX.

Hopefully this clarifies it a bit, I'm stumped though.
Yes, but the registry settings in the "Folder" download will also affect the "Save As" type of boxes as well. It would still be worth a try to see if it may help.

Yes I have tried defaulting the file associations for ZIP files. Restarted PC, went to download a zip and still the folder in the Save Dialog will not rename from New Folder. I have also tried a complete Malwarebytes scan & that found nothing.

Keith, did you try the Folder download option instead of ZIP yet?

Keith,

As a test, create a new administrator account to see if you have this issue in it as well.

Hi Brink,

The new account works fine, obviously that points to something on my normal account, do you have any thoughts as to what it may be?

Keith,

It can be so many possibilities. A simple solution would be to copy all contents of your old account's C:\Users\(user-name) user folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) user folders. This will copy over most of your settings and all shortcuts to your new account. After everything checks out ok for you in the new account, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new one.

Brink,

I copied everything from the old account to the new one, including system & hidden files and the problem is back again. Would I be best to delete the new account again, setup another one & this time copy the hidden, but not the system, plus all of the data?

Keith.

Keith,

Sure, you can try that to see if it that may work better.
