Cannot Change File Name

How can I make a file (txt) so that that the filename could not be changed. I have already made it ReadOnly but I don't want anyone to change the name of either. Any advice?

Windows renaming is actually a delete/create action.
If you take away the Delete/Write permissions on the file itself you should be able to prevent a rename operation.

did not know that, very interesting.

I suppose this is because a permanent record is kept in the master file table.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
