Total Commander is great file manager, however renaming files is annoying requiring slow double click. The fix for this issue is to create shortcut.

  1. From top menu navigate to Configuration > Change Settings Directly 
  2. Ensure that opened file is wincmd.ini
  3. Search for [shortcuts] in this file

If you have [shortcuts] part then add F2=1002 in next line to have something like the following:

[shortcuts]
F2=1002

If you don't have [shortcuts] part in configuration file just add the above snipped to the end of file.

Restart Total Commander - from now on, pressing F2 will trigger in-place rename.
