WiFi File Transfer can help

I will update if more information is needed.
I'll add that I am not sure if the problem actually lies with the phone or my computer, however I have never experienced this with anything other than my phone, including of course external hard drives.
I have been having the exact same problem with my Note 3, as recently as last night. I connect the device, the computer recognizes it, and I can browse the files/folders, move things around. But if I try to rename a folder, it just freezes. Actually, sometimes it freezes when I try to copy files too. I have no idea why.
I found a way to get around it, but it involves using the WiFi File Transfer app from the Play Store. The app is excellent. You install it, and then just type in the URL it gives you in your web browser. You can do everything you would normally do with your device (transfer files, rename folders, delete files, etc). There's both a free and a pro version. I bought the pro because it was such a useful app. Link below:
