Rename a file or folder

You can rename files or folders in your Dropbox in three different ways:

  • On dropbox.com
  • From the Dropbox mobile app
  • From the Dropbox desktop application

You can also rename shared folders.

  • Note: A renamed shared folder only reflects in your Dropbox. Limiting a rename to your Dropbox helps avoid confusion for the other members of the shared folder.

Renaming on dropbox.com

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com.
  2. Click Files.
  3. Hover over the file or folder you'd like to rename, and click the ... (ellipsis icon).
  4. Click Rename.

Renaming on a mobile device

Android

  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Tap the dropdown arrow to the right of the file or folder you'd like to rename.
  3. Select Rename from the menu that pops up at the bottom of your screen.

iOS

Rename files

  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Tap the ... (ellipsis) icon next to the file nameyou'd like to change.
  3. Tap Rename.

While viewing a file, you can also rename it from the file action menu ().

Rename folders

  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Tap the ... (ellipsis) icon next to the folder name you'd like to change.
  3. Tap Folder Settings. Or, if it's a shared folder, tap Shared Folder Settings.
  4. Tap the folder name.

Renaming on the Dropbox desktop app

On your computer, rename the file or folder as you normally would. For example, click the file, wait a moment, and then the file name again to edit it.

The new name appears on all devices linked to your Dropbox account, and on dropbox.com.

Note: This process is different for shared folders.
