Windows explorer bug: renaming files highlights file name while editing, removing entire name

New Contributor

This has been a problem for several years with Windows explorer.

 

If you work decently fast editing a file name, either by clicking on it or pressing F2, and then start typing immediately, Explorer automatically selects the whole name after about a second. This is really annoying since it removes the entire name if you're typing when this happens.
