How can I rename file with left click?

In Mandriva 2005,when you left click the file name,you can change the file name.But in Debian/GNU the function does not act as default.How can I make it?

What desktop are you using? KDE or Gnome?

And what file manager are you using?

Please provide more info when you ask a question. Thanks

If Mandriva does that, it's the only OS I know of. Maybe try a right click.

Yeah, even in Windows and Mac, right-click is the standard for renaming files.

Unless your mouse is configured to be used with the left hand.
