To Rename a File
In some circumstances, you may want to rename a ﬁ le or a folder. This could occur when you want to distinguish
a ﬁ le in one folder or drive from a copy, or if you decide you need a better name to identify a ﬁ le. The Word folder in
Figure 1–74 contains the three Word documents (Barn and Silo, Fall Harvest, and Lake at Sunset) required to perform
the lab assignments in the Word section of this topic. In this case, you decide to change the Fall Harvest name to Great
Fall Harvest. The following steps change the name of the Fall Harvest ﬁ le in the Word folder to Great Fall Harvest.
• Click the Word folder in the left
pane to display the Barn and Silo,
Fall Harvest, and Lake at Sunset
ﬁ les in the right pane.
• Right-click the Fall Harvest icon in
the right pane to select the Fall
Harvest icon and display a shortcut
menu (Figure 1–74).
