ctrl+ r was also always for me for refreshing. F2 i didnt´know at all (and i love using hotkeys in TC) but F2 for renaming is in the rest of the windowsworld very common. SO it would be almost a logical prozedure to give that feature to TC!

ALT + F4 was always a little to unhandy... long way, specially fpr smaller fingers. So I used the slightly doublekick for that... a bit dodgy always!!

Secret short cut…

:) Hello!

• You can close TC with a single finger using Alt+X, generally these keys are beside one another… ;)

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

Why isn't "F2=rename" the default setting in TC7 public beta 3?

Please don't change the standard keys!!

I still use Norton Commander in DOS, I use Midnight Commander in Linux, I use CC in NetWare, I use TotalCommander in Windows. Can you imagine the confusion if the standard keys were not the same??

I never use a mouse in any of these programs, I totally rely on the function keys. I use them automatically, without thinking, and very fast. Small wonder, since I'm used to them for nearly 20 years ...

Yes, you could change the standard behaviour to your liking, but if you (like me) install new machines every day and make a TC shareware installation to every new machine (hopefully bringing you new customers!), you simply don't have the time to change much. Same when I'm called to administrate machines without TC on them (yes, there are some ;) ): first thing I do is download TC. And since I'm usually in a hurry then, I have to use it with standard options.


I support the idea to make templates for new and old users, like some of my predecessors suggested, as long as the standard mapping remains the same as before.

Like some other people already said: If you want some program to behave like Explorer, then use Explorer! (shudder ...)

Keep up the good work! Best program I ever worked with!

It's not a problem if you don't install TC, but copy it. As I do so, for me it makes no difference whether there's F2 or CTRL+F6. And I think that for most newcomers F2 is better. As most people do.

just leave it as an option to assign function keys...

Games and F2

:) I agree ! And just a thought about this :

• In Windows games (who never played with ?), the new game is… F2 ! So, it's alright a kind of refresh, isn't it ?

• Hence, one can't claim that F2 for refresh is not a Win short cut ! :P

:mrgreen:  Kind regards,

Old and new user templates - that's a great idea, I for one would go crazy if F2 wouldn't refresh the directory, instead it would make me type some unwanted name to a file. It could happen with a new installation with reassigned shortcuts.

I mean, F2=refresh - it's the way it's meant to be :)

Wow, 60 % voted for F2 = rename should be default, only 24 voted for "no".

Will this be implemented?

"Configuration" -> "Misc." -> "Redifine hotkeys (Keyboard remapping)" -> "Hotkey"

Configuration->Misc->Redefine keys->F2->cm_RenameOnly
