I usually work very often with shortkeys. And so I use to press F2 to rename a file. With remote files this shortkey still works fine but with local files F2 doesn't have any effect. I know that this worked a view time ago. I already reinstalled SmartFTP completely without any effect. So what's the problem?

Is there any context to another phenomen? When I connect a server via a favourite and there is opened a local window, too, the focus is on Desktop folder an NOT on the folder stated in the favourite.
