Select full file name when renaming on Windows 7

I am referring to the Windows 7 F2 keypress behavior that occurs when the focus is set to a file in Windows Explorer. I would like to change its behavior back to the XP model of selecting the entire file name including the file extension. Thanks.

If you are just looking to copy the filename after pressing F2 you could check out CopyFilenames

No, I am not, thanks. I have dozens of macros I wrote in XP that expect an F2 to highlight the entire file name and extension so the extension can be analyzed and choices made accordingly. I'd rather not re-write them is all. – user52824 Oct 21 '10 at 15:49
