Using a desktop pc with W10, I see a photo listed as "IMG6392" in File Explorer. I would like to rename it to "Mary and Joe". Right clicking IMG6392 brings up many options but Rename is not one of them. HOW do I rename the photo? Thanks. ..... batpark

Hello Batpark,

 

Don't go into the file, just click on the little thumbnail in whichever folder the photo is stored. Are you not then given the option to rename the photo?

EDIT Sorry, missed that you said 'in File Explorer'. Right click on the file and select 'Properties'. In the box that comes up, change the name at the top, while being sure to keep the .jpg bit. Then click OK.

Hello Batpark,

 

Just checking that you saw my Edit above about changing the name in Properties. The fact you haven't answered has made me think that maybe you didn't see it!

 

Please let me know if you managed to solve this problem.

 

Chris.

Okay. I guess I'll have to assume you solved the problem yourself! :surrender:

Dear Channeal: Good to hear from you. Thanks for your help.

 

As a matter of fact, I have solved a big piece of my problem(s), but not all.

 

1. I am now comfortable finding where many (or most) of  photo attachments are stored after I download them from email attachments. To be clear, for me they land in C:\users\801\downloads. And from that listing in File Manager i am able to rename the photo from something like IMG_222345.jpg to a more memorable joedoaks.jpg.

 

2, But some photos I get defy that routine.Apparently, there Is a separate procedure I should be using depending on whether the photo is from Instagram or another source, or whether it is embedded in the email rather than being an attachment?

 

3 I still am very fuzzy on handling these difference.And  I could certainly profit from a document that discusses Downloading photos and how best to file them. If you knew such a source I'd welcome learning of it.

 

In short. I am managing my photos but with more trial-and-error than I'd like to see.

 

Again, thanks for contacting me. ..... batpark

Hello Batpark,

 

Am pleased to hear that there has been at least some improvement.  :thumbsup: 

 

 

EDIT Sorry, missed that you said 'in File Explorer'. Right click on the file and select 'Properties'. In the box that comes up, change the name at the top, while being sure to keep the .jpg bit. Then click OK.

 

Did this help at all with renaming a photo viewed in File Explorer?

 

Regarding where photos downloaded via a browser (e.g. from an email attachment viewed in a webmail email program) are saved to, have you looked at the download options for different file types as provided by whichever browser you use? On my computer, I set the download options for jpg files in Mozilla Firefox to 'Always Ask' and now, if I opt to save a photo received via Yahoo Mail in Firefox, it gives me the option of downloading to any location I choose. I can also rename the file at the same time.

 

Chris.
