+1 for LJSHost simple at the command prompt cd to the directory above the one that you want to rename. Then #mv oldfoldername newfoldername

mv = move but you are actually mv it to another name :salute:

+1 for everyone in this post.

To use the mv command you do not need to be anywhere in the vicinity of the folder, you just need to know it full path. However if you are above it's folder you can use like the above mention.

Otherwise you can use "mv /path/to/oldfoldername /path/to/newfoldername" . Will also produce the same result. This however you can move rename and also move the folder to a new location if did desired so.
