EndUserSharePoint.com: How can I change the name of an existing Document Library?

The question of the day comes from Zeynep in California:

I’m currently setting up a sub-site and loading in files.  I created a Document Library and now I would like to revise the name of the Document Library.  How do I do that? I poked around a bit and could not figure this out.

One odd thing about SharePoint is that to change or delete something (a site, list or library) you first need to be on that item. So, changing a Library Name is performed by:

  • From the Library, use Settings menu, then Document Library Settings
  • From the General Settings section select Title, description and navigation.
  • From this screen you can change the title of the library.
  • Click the OK button at the bottom of the screen.
