How to Change Name of Documents Folder in Windows 8.1 upgrade

  wdrspens 18:56 12 May 2014

Somehow I managed to change the name of the Documents folder in Windows 8.1 upgrade to "OldDocuments". I do not know how but want to change it back to "Documents". Can any one tell me how to do it. I have tried right clicking on the folder, but there is no option to change the name or rename. I have tried changing it in its Properties, but again there is no option to do so, so far as I can discover. I am now at my wits end and would appreciate being told how to change its name. David

if you go to properties then location,can you change it in there?

Or if you find the location of the file there is a tab that says Rename.

Thanks tullie for the suggestions. I can rename the file in its location, and it is now showing as Documents. It worked. Many thanks, David
