    As recently as just a few weeks ago, I could use F2 to add a prefix to multiple files (files with different names, e.g. red.txt, white.txt, blue.txt, green.txt, renamed to AAred.text, AAwhite.txt, AAblue.txt, AAgreen.txt simply by selecting all of them, pressing F2, adding AA to the first file, then hitting Enter.) Something has changed within the last couple of weeks where it now renames all the files to AAred, AAred(1).txt, AAred(2).txt, AAred(3).txt. Any idea what has changed? Did I change something in the settings on my laptop? Did a recent Windows update change the behavior of the F2 key?

    I've never had that for the F2 button. For me, F2 lowers volume. I am also on a Dell. Are you sure you don't have any other apps installed that are responsible for controlling what your F2 key does?
