The Easiest Way To Rename A File

When you're working in Windows Explorer and you want to rename a file, you can click File, Rename or you can right-click and select Rename.

But there's an even easier way. With the file selected just hit the F2 key on your keyboard and type the new name.

I also use this tip when I need to copy a filename to another document. Just four simple and quick steps.

  1. Hit F2 to edit,
  2. CTRL+C to copy,
  3. ALT+Tab to switch to the other document,
  4. CTRL+V to paste.

Why not print (CTRL+P) this tip and
share it with your friends and associates?
