Lightroom 5 still has the bug of not being able move some files or rename folders that are selected. In the video below is an example of moving a file to another folder. The selected image doesn't move until you select a separate image. When I move a set of images, the first/selected image does the same thing. I also can't rename the current folder. I have a select another one to rename it.

I have the same problem. The only way I found to get round this problem is to "Open Lightroom as Administrator".

This is so despite me having administrator priviliges and, despite me listed in security tab for folders and files as user with full control ticked.
