    Rename system folders in another language


    Hi,


    I'm using Windows 10 and a Surface Pro 6. When I set up my laptop I used an account with Mandarin as the preferred language. This might have led to all system folders (e.g., desktop, document, and pictures) displayed in Mandarin. Now I want to change their names to English so that I can type file path more conveniently. Could you please let me know how I can do that? I tried change the language for my account and sync language settings to the device, but none of them worked.


    Thank you!

    :)

    Hi Howard,

    It is possible that the difficulty renaming your folder is due to access/account limitation or a recent change was made on your computer. For better assistance, please answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting an error message when trying to rename the folder?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried?
    • Can you send us a screenshot of the "Public" folders?

  4. Rename system folders in another language

    Unable to create a new folder or rename a folder

    Hi Edver,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. I'll certainly help you with this.

    I would like to let you know that you may not be able to rename or add a new folder from Quick access. It will allow you to open the folders that are frequently used, recently viewed files or the files/folders that are added to
    Quick access.

    If you are unable to create or rename files/folders in other folders as well, then I would suggest you to run a SFC scan.

    System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc /scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.

    Hope this will help you. Keep us posted with the status of the issue to assist you further.

    Thank you.
