Rename Warning!

If you rename this file, it will no longer...

 
  Description  
     
 

The file you wish to rename is a htm or html file (a web page file) that has connected components, such as other pages and images. This warning indicates these links will be broken if you elect to rename the file.

In general, it's best to copy the entire parent folder and sub-folders as a group to retain these connected components.

While not recommended, there is no harm in disabling the connected files feature in Windows. To do this:

  1. Open the Run dialog (Windows key + R) and type Regedit and click OK.
  2. In the left pane, navigate to and click the key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
  3. On the menubar, click Edit, New, DWORD and name the new value NoFileFolderConnection. Set it's value to 1.

The Connected Files feature is used to link various files and components, so that any changes that would break these links will generate a warning. Connected Files is not a required feature, but it does help reduce inadvertent breaking of htm and html local web pages.

For example, Internet Explorer uses the Windows Connected Files feature when using the Save As, Web Page, complete (.*htm, *.html)  command.
