Edit in grid view in SharePoint Online Search Results

I'm looking for a solution to edit folders in "Edit in grid View" mode on SP Online. I can only edit documents but not folders. It is not possible out of the box but what are my options? I hope someone can help with this.

    Based on your description, in the "Edit in grid view" mode you could only edit documents but not folders. I did a test in the modern mode. I could edit folders in the "Edit in grid view" mode.


    I also did a test in the classic mode. In the classic mode of search results, although the "Edit in grid view" mode disappeared, you could also quickly edit the folder.


    And I want to confirm what dose "Search Results" refer to? If it is convenient, please provide some screenshots of the issue so that I could further troubleshoot it.
