Can't click to just select file name in meta data?!

I used to be able to simple click on the file name in the meta data to select, copy, and paste parts of it for use else where. 

Now when I click it opens the file renaming dialog box. I don't want this! 

How do I revert to being able to simple click on the file name in the meta data so that I can select, copy and paste parts of the file name?!

 

Thanks!

I'm on a Mac Pro running Mojave v. 10,14,6 and using Lightroom Calssic 10.4

What particular Mac Pro?

Is the model keeping you from upgrading the MACOS? And hence upgrading LrC?

 

I do not remember metadata changes back in v10, now if you were talking v11, that would be different, maybe.

This may or many not explain it, but there is a subtle detail about where you click. If you click slightly to the right of the filename, you will hit the Batch Rename button. So it should work reliably if you make sure to click the middle of the filename and not drift past the right edge of the filename to that Batch Rename button.
