Paste Filename command

Top  Previous  Next

The Paste Filename command renames the selected file or folder using the text in the clipboard.

This is equivalent to selecting the following commands in Windows Explorer: File > Rename File ; CTRL + V ; Return

The Paste Filename command only appears if a single file or folder is selected. It also only appears if the clipboard contains text that can be used as a filename.

Text can only be used as a filename if:

The text is shorter than 260 characters in length.
Note: even if the text is shorter than 260 characters, this may still be too long for a filename since Windows has a limit of 260 characters for the entire path to a file, not just the filename.

The text does not contains any of the characters that are illegal in filenames:
\ / : * ? " < > |

The text does not contain any control characters such as carriage return, new line or tab.
