    Can't Change Names of Folders in Main Library of Windows 10


    The following photo is of what I want to change: Can't Change Names of Folders in Main Library of Windows 10 8a9f3bd9-9d3c-43f9-b660-dbe905371bef?upload=true.jpg


    I want to change these names, especially "Music" to Audio Files, since I don't store music mp3s on my computer. The latest update to Windows 10 has wiped out my previous ability to do this simple task. It eliminated the "Rename" feature in the "Properties" tab. When will Microsoft recognize that users would love the ability to customize their folders.



    How can I fix this problem?

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Changing file name changes the folder name AND cannot find the folder


    Two odd things are happen to my files:

    1. Changing only the file name in explorer changes the folder name
    2. I cannot locate the directory (possibly a library)

    Here's what is happening in explorer:

    I search for the text OLD, the results come up: file=IMG_3654.JPG folder path= c:\users\jose\photos old\

    So I know the folder exists, but it does not appear in explorer within c:\users\jose\

    Then, I change the file name in explorer to IMG_3654XXX.JPG and the folder name changes to c:\users\jose\pictures\holiday (this folder can be seen).

    Is this something to do with libraries? Under libraries, the name photos old is NOT listed.

    Change Folder Icon in Windows 10


    I just acquired a new laptop running Windows 10 and am trying to change the icons of the folders in the StartUp "Program" folder so that they would stand out a little better. I used my admin account and followed all the steps listed above, but when I clicked on "Apply", nothing happened. The same basic windows folder icon remained attached to the folder. I also tried to go into Properties and capitalize some of the folder names, but that didn't work either. Looks like something is protecting them, but I cannot figure out what it is much less how to get around this blockage, Any suggestions?
