    renaming files with the mouse...hmmm....

    if I have to take my fingers off the keyboard...fiddle around with the mouse...clicky, clicky....then put my fingers back on the keys and type in the name anyway....am I not better off staying in my friendly terminal and doing a little mv action?

    i have also became very dependent on the left click once pause for a millisecond and left click again giving you access to change the file name.

    once you've done this for 10 years to perform the rename it feels weird to right click or F2.

    I would really like to find a way to do this if anyone can help

    Yes please.

    Please give us the option to set it to use or not use left-click-wait-click-agaiin for rename.

    Also, the option to work like Mac does rename, I think click-wait.

    Either way, it is not about trying to CHANGE a user... Give the user what they ask for, unless it breaks a thing.

    I can't see this option breaking anything! So, even though many do not like this option, many do, and have been entrenched in using it.

    Would it really be that hard to code?
