Struggling to rename video files in Bridge on Windows.

So, when I go to rename a single .mp4 or .mxf files in Bridge it (seemingly randomly) comes up with the "the process cannot be completed because it is open in another process" error prompt. For some reason, it seems that trying different ways to rename it helps. For example, clicking the clip and hitting F2 brings up the prompt. Click ok. Right click -> rename will bring up the prompt. Click ok. Hit F2, and it will let me rename the file successfully. Oh and the error comes up AFTER I type the name and press enter. I'm so lost at how and why this error keeps popping up. Eventually, it allows me to rename the file after cycling through a few times. Also the annoying part is I don't know if the rename will work until after I press enter. I've tried to "open in Explorer" and rename there and it allows me to rename. A previous post suggests that this means it's a Bridge problem, not a Windows OS problem. I also tried mapping a new keyboard shortcut to rename, and it didn't make a difference. Batch Rename works fine though. 


This only happens on my Windows PC, my M1 Mac completes is perfectly fine without any issues. I just use my Mac at this point to rename files, but now I'm just trying to figure out the why. it's bothering me more that I can't figure it out then it than it bothers me by not allowing me to do what  I want haha


Bridge version is (been doing this through many updates, though)
PC Specs are:
AMD Ryzen 7 3700x
