Windows 7: Renaming Folder File Stops Opening

15 Feb 2018   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

At least you have found the problem, well done.

Keep folder & file names short, it makes them easier to identify & remember. Also keep in mind that the file name path could include the sub folder name, the name of the main folder, what directory it is in, & the name of the program that the original file came from & this path is not known to you when you are naming a file, unless you have it in mind. So you can see that this could easily exceed the file naming limit.

This MS website might help you.
