Re: How can I rename a file?


Hi @peter77 - welcome to the Dropbox Family and thanks for posting your first question on our Community!

At first, could you let me know on what kind of device are you working on and what exactly seems to be troubling you?

If you'd like to take a look, we have a dedicated Help Center article as per how to rename a file or folder of yours. Have you taken a look there for starters? 

Here's a direct link for reference: 

I hope this helps and I'm always around should you have any questions Peter.
