Hello,
I'm unable to rename any files or folder by using F2 key in my Dell laptop.
Dell Inspiron 1564 - Core I3 Processor
In my Laptop, if we press directly F2 key is working for WIFI on/off. Please suggest me on this - I really do appreciate it.
Thanks!

Hi

In Windows, function keys are not used to rename files and folders.

In Explorer if you hi-light the file name and press F2. You get a window opened to rename the file. I didn't know it existed until I experimented myself.
