    Question Renaming Files

    I've looked and looked for this answer so I apologize in advance if it has already been covered somewhere else.

    I've taken video and pictures with my beautiful new phone but would like to rename them to what I want - not just the date:time stamp. I know I can connect to my computer and do it that way but what a bother. There simply has to be a way and I just can't figure it out. Please help. And thanks...

    If you go to your "My Files" icon on you phone and click it, there should be a list of folders pop-up. Navigate to the folder that holds your pictures (it's the DCIM folder on my phone), then select the "Camera" folder, then press and hold on the picture you want to rename. A list of options will appear, select "Rename" and that should do it. You should be able to the same thing for your videos and music by navigating to the "Media" folder and following the same process. Hope this helps! God Bless!

    Thanks for the tip.
    I was able to rename some files and also change the suffix for file type on some so that files could be imported into other applications. Had to use Astro file manager for this. I find it much more useful than the MyFiles app that came on the phone.

    Yes, Astro will allow you to do this as will other file managers such as Root Explorer, which I also use.

    I've been looking for over an hour where my pictures would be saved other than the "pictures" folder that was on the SD card from my previous phone. I looked every where and every way that I could think of. So frustrating, so thanks again!
