How to Rename Files or Folders
You can rename any file or folder on your PC. You can rename a file or folder to make it more descriptive, or to give it a name that’s easier for you to find.
1Right-click the icon once.
You’ll see that it’s selected.
2Choose the Rename command from the Organize button’s menu.
The file’s current name is highlighted or selected — just like selected text in a word processor.
3Type a new name or edit the current name.
The new name appears as you type.
4Press the Enter key to lock in the new name.
Note that all files must have a name. If you don’t give the file a name (you try to leave it blank), Windows complains. You can also press F2 to rename a file, after you’ve clicked it.
