    Default Rename File feature not working

    Hi,
    The Rename File feature has stopped working, both in the Irfanview thumbnails and the enlarged pic. If I select it, no dialog box appears and the application freezes till I hit Esc.
    I had a similar problem recently with a different application and the answer was that the dialog box was hiding offscreen. That might be the reason this time but if so I can't see how to get at the said dialog box. Can anyone help, please?

    The position of the dialog box is held in the i_view32.ini file. Open it in notepad. Look in the [WinPosition] section for FileRename. Change the first two parameters to 400,400, and resave the file. That should put it somewhere near mid-screen.

    If you do not know how to find i_view32.ini ask again.

    Brilliant - worked like a charm.

    Many thanks, MiJ!
