When you right-click on the desktop, go to New and Folder from the context menu to create a new folder on the desktop, you get a new folder with the default name, called New folder, created automatically by the system.
It’s quite dull, isn’t it? Is there any way to change the default naming format in Windows 10?
A nice registry tweak comes in handy. Thanks to Kapil for sharing.
Basically, open Registry Editor, create a new key called NamingTemplates under the following location:
And then create a new STRING value called RenameNameTemplate and set the preferred default file name as the new value, like below.
The change takes effect right away. Now close out the Registry Editor and let’s give it a try.
It’s actually not only for new folders, but new files as well.
