Single-click renaming

Post by XnTriq »

Single-click renaming works fine when View as is set to Thumbnails.
Trying to hit “the right spot” with the cursor in Thumbnails & Labels mode on the other hand can be a pretty frustrating endeavor at times:
  • Image
    The green areas are responsive to mouse clicks.
For now I'm using the F2 keyboard shortcut, but I was wondering if there's a configuration that allows me to have the same behavior (single click on filename) in both modes?

My settings:
  • Tools » Options... » Browser
    • » Browser
      • [ ] Hide extension to rename
        [ ] Use dialog to rename
      » Folder tree
      • [x] Single click to rename
      » Thumbnails » Appearance
      • [x] Show filename in 'Thumbnail mode'
