I have a shortcut on my desktop I’d like to rename. How do I do it?
Just right-click the shortcut and select Rename from the resulting menu. The shortcut’s name will now be highlighted. Just type in the new name and you’re all set.
If you want to get fancier and show off, you can single-click on the icon and hit the F2 button. This will get the name highlighted and allow you to type in the new name.
Either way, you should be all re-named.
