    Default How to rename a file in your computer in Java?

    import java.io.File;
     
    public class RenameFile {
     
     public static void main(String[] args) {
     
      File file = new File("C:\\MyFile.txt");
      File newFile = new File("C:\\MyFileRenamed.txt");
      file.renameTo(newFile);
     }
    }

    This code will take the file 'MyFile.txt' and rename it 'MyFileRenamed.txt'

    This can be used to rename any file on your computer.
