  2. One way is to double click on a “File Name” and simply type a new name.filemgr-cpanel-6-rename-scene3_1Now type a new name. In this case, we will just add “my”, so the name will be”mynewtest.html”. Press enter after you’re done.
  3. Now let’s try another method. Single click on “mynewtest.html”and then click on Rename.filemgr-cpanel-6-rename-scene5_1
