                if (node == tvNotes.Nodes[0]) { return; }   <=============
                node.TreeView.LabelEdit = true;
                node.BeginEdit();    <===============================

               TreeNode node = tvNotes.SelectedNode;  <=============

Set node to the tree node selected on the screen.

                if (node == null) { return; }  <==================

If no node is selected, return.

                if (node == tvNotes.Nodes[0]) { return; }   <=============

If the selected node is the first node on the tree, return.

                node.BeginEdit();    <===============================

Begin editing the node, that is changes to the node won't be reflected on the screen until EndEdit is executed.

I hope this helps.

line 6: Create a new object 'node' of type 'TreeNode', assign it the value of the 'SelectedNode' in the treeview with id 'tvNotes'
line 7: If the value of the object 'node' is null (i.e. if node is 'empty') then exit this current method
line 8: If the value of the object 'node' is equal to that of the first node in the treeview 'tvNotes', then exit this method
line 10: Call the BeginEdit() method  of the node object.
