To rename by F2, you need to manually configure assignment of program hotkeys. By default in Total Commander hotkeys/shortcut Shift+F6 are used for rename operation.

To set up hotkeys, namely F2 for renaming action in Total Commander, do following:

  1. Main menu ⇒ Preferences ⇒ Configuration ⇒ Misc.
  2. In "Redefine hotkeys" choose F2 key, then click on magnify glass to the right from Command field and choose "cm_RenameOnly" (without quotes) from list (you can type part of command name to filter items). You can also find "cm_RenameOnly" in the File Operations category. Click OK button.
  3. Click green check mark button to the right from magnify glass button.

After performed actions, pressing the F2 key will call specified command – rename.
