How do I rename a folder in My Drive?


In this example, we will walk through renaming a folder called Design Projects to its new name of Background Images.


To rename a folder, exit the folder so that you are in the root drive (All my Files) by pressing the Back tab at the top left of the My Drive window.



Once you do that, you will see the folder thumbnail in the All my Files window.



Under the folder symbol you will see the folder’s name, and some icons.




To Rename the folder: Click the pen icon


When you click this icon, the folder’s name will become unlocked so that you can edit it.



When you are finished, click the checkmark. (To cancel the change, click the X.)



The folder now has its new name, in this example, “Background Images”.
