Using the Rename-Item Cmdlet
Renaming a File or Folder
What can you do with the Rename-Item cmdlet? Well, one thing you can do is rename files or folders; all you have to do is call Rename-Item followed by two parameters:
The current path for the file or folder.
The new name for the file or folder.
For example, this command renames the file C:\Scripts\Test.txt to C:\Scripts\New_Name.txt:
Rename-Item c:\scripts\test.txt new_name.txt
