Renaming a File or Folder

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

Follow these steps:

  1. Select the file or folder you want to rename.

  2. Click Rename this file in the Task pane. The current name is then highlighted (see Figure 3.9).

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