As far as I know there is no actual 'fix'
Deleting desktop.ini has been suggested for one fix but it's never worked for me.

The best way to deal with this is to right click on one of the headers i.e. name, type, size
Then, from the column list select 'more' at the bottom
Select Filename from the list and this should then show the actual folder names
You can then drag this to the left so it's the first column or any column you wish.

We deployed Win10 companywide last year already and some people had that. With v1607, it vanished, as far as I know. So it seemed to be a bug in win10 v1511.

I've seen this issues since XP in some companies, be great if it's finally fixed in that version of Win 10, after all these years!

Then good luck that it does indeed vanish with 1607. Since our folks (about 50) are quite picky with their installations and no one has complained anymore since 1607 rollout, I'd be hopeful.
