Cannot Rename the Favorites Folder in Windows 2000
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
If you rename the Favorites folder in Windows 2000, the folder is re-created instantly when the existing folder is renamed.
This behavior occurs because of differences in file locking between Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows 95/Microsoft Windows 98. Renaming the Favorites folder would cause problems in Windows 2000.
Microsoft strongly recommends against attempts to rename any system folder. Renaming a system folder could cause serious problems or instability.
The behavior is by design.
