rename file
When I tried to move a folder I received an error message that said the file
name was too long. When I right click on the file, I do not get the RENAME
option. So I am stuck with a file in Temporary Files that will not move and
will not rename, Is there another way to rename the file?

RE: rename file
You could run the Disk Cleanup utility and check to remove all temporary
files. See if that helps.

RE: rename file
Perhaps we do it the " long " way. Open the folder to display the contain.
Right click and choose NEW. Now you have a new folder which you can choose a
"shorter" name, drag the contain into the newly named folder. Delete the "too
long" folder. Now you won't have any problem moving it.
