Our small business has a mix of windows 10 and windows 7 clients running under Server 2016.
When copying a folder into a subfolder, we sometimes get "problem" files where the full path is over 260 characters.
Under both windows 10 and windows 7 Microsoft Explorer displays the folders & files properly .
But when a windows 10 user double clicks on one of the problem files, nothing happens. Sometimes the users waste quite a bit of time then come to me for help.
When a windows 7 user double clicks on a problem file, explorer.exe gives a nice error message "the file name is too long". This is much better, and sometimes they don't even need to come to me to solve the problem.
Is there a way to get windows 10 build 1709 to generate the same error message?
