Renaming a File or Folder

If you did not use a descriptive name when you saved the file, if you misspelled the file name, or if the current name doesn't accurately describe the file contents, you can rename it. You can also rename folders you created, selecting a more descriptive name as needed. You can rename only a single item at a time.

Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the file or folder you want to rename.
  2. Click Rename. The current name is highlighted (see Figure 3.11).

    Figure 3.11 Type a new name for the highlighted file.

  3. Type the new name and press Enter. The file or folder is renamed.
