hi there

running xp via parallels on my macbook.

no immediate problems, however on my windows boxes i can just click a file and hit F2 to rename it. In parallels this doesn't seem to work.

Is there another keyboard hotkey I have to use to rename files? Right clicking each one in turn and selecting "rename" is proving very painful...

thanks if anyone can help

You might have to hold down the Fn key when you do it.
