File Manager - renameWhen you connect your webOS device to a computer, you have the option of entering USB mode to view or edit all the files on your device. You can copy, delete, rename or move around files all you want, but sometimes you don't have a computer nearby when you want to edit your files directly on your device. Whether you have a webOS phone or a TouchPad, there are a number of great file manager applications available to you that will allow you to edit your files. For the cases where you want to rename a file on your device, the steps are a little different depending on the app you are using.

The apps that we would recommend are:

Internalz / Internalz Pro, by Jason Robitaille

  1. Find the file that you want to rename and tap on it, or find a folder that you want to rename and press-and-hold on it. A pop-up will appear and select "Info".
  2. The filename or folder name will appear at the top of the screen. Tap on it to edit it
  3. Type in your desired new name and press Enter.
  4. A pop-up will appear asking you to confirm the new name. Select "Yes"
  5. Swipe-back (on phones) or swipe-down on the TouchPad to view the Application dropdown menu and choose "Back" to return to the file manager
  • Internalz is available in the webOS App Catalog for $3.99, while Internalz Pro is available in the webOS Nation homebrew app gallery for free.
