Do you have a 3rd party customised right click context menu?
I am the same as @glasskuter on that one

To reproduce:
Rename a folder in File Explorer.
Right-click>More Options (old context menu)

Same with copy and move.

Unfortunately, the context menu disappears if I click or press a key.
But I get the option even in the new Win 11 context menu. You just have to right -click a blank spot.

That's the new context menu which I don't use.
Me neither, but I can reproduce it in several ways. For instance:
- create a new folder
- move this folder, for instance by moving it into an existing folder
- now right click an empty spot -> you will see the "undo move" option now

Well, I must be blind because I have no "more" or "undo" options in mine.
You won't have the "more options" option. However, the "undo move", "undo rename", etcetera options should be there immediately after you have moved, renamed, etcetera something.

If you delete a folder, and right click an empty spot (i.e. not on a folder or file) immediately afterwards, you don't see an option to undo? I do. My Windows is in Dutch, but after I have deleted a folder I get the option to undo this ("Verwijderen ongedaan maken") in my right click menu:

And similar items appear after moving, renaming, etcetera. This is not new to Windows 11, has been this way in previous Windows versions as well.

I have no desire at all to remove these items, by the way.

I do see the undo rename in this scenario.
Right click file-rename-type in new file name-BUT DO NOT CLICK ENTER which would apply the rename-right click again-the undo rename option is there, but the file hasn't actually been renamed at this point. It just undoes what I typed as new file name. Does anyone use that??

The Undo Rename option is there for me even after I press enter, or otherwise allow the rename operation to complete. Even if I close Explorer, and right click the desktop, it is still there. It goes away after a while, but I have never bothered to test how long. I believe it's after another file operation.
