    Are you using an Insider Preview build version of Windows 10?

    If so, after a Shift+Right-Click on a folder, Command Window may have been replaced with PowerShell Window.

    But you could type cmd there to reach a command prompt in the selected folder.

    So you're getting "Open command window here" as expected.

    I assume he used Windows Explorer to do the move.
    Correct!

    I’ve done it.
    The name of the clip art was to long, it would not let me delete it or change its name.
    It was in 4 or may be 5 folders inside each other Cartoon \ male \ Black – white \ another \ another
    I tried to move the clip art out of the folder it said Name to long etc then I tried to move the clip art in one folder. And it moved,!! So I tried to rename it and it worked.
    It seemed to be a the fact that the name was too long and in too many folders, reduce trhe number of folders and it let me rename

    That's the method I use if I can't fix it otherwise. Once you have moved it further up the tree and renamed it, you can move it back down where it belongs.

    cheers, Paul

    Re: filenames / filetitles in Windows.

    In Windows contexts a "filename" includes the "path" to the file (all the folder names from the partition's "root" folder), while the part of the name immediately before the extension is considered by Windows as the "filetitle".

    An example:
    C:\foldername\foldername1\foldername2\\foldername3 \filename.ext
    is the "filename" - "filename" is the "filetitle".
    The maximum number of characters for a "filename" is 256 - consequently if a file w/ a very long "filetitle" is buried deep within a series of folders which also have lengthy names the 256 character limit is likely to be exceeded so Windows cannot properly store the "filename" in memory hence cannot make any change to the "filetitle".
    Moving the offending file "up" the folder "tree" shortens the "filename" - once the length of the "filename" is less than the 256 character limit Windows can store the "filename" in memory so can make changes to it.
