Do you realize how hard it is to rename a file through the ordinary
"Rename" function if you also need to move the file to another folder?
You have to write the complete change of path like
../../../a-folder/another-folder/NewName. This is too error-prone and
really too time-consuming when it would be so easy just to right-drag it
between two explorer windows. So I really need the "move with rename"
option for the right-drag context menu, and no, I don't mind one extra
entry. I really urge you to reconsider implementing this.

Don't anyone else have any opinion on this?

Best wishes,
