Can I Change File Names On Downloads?

Apple Mac Pro ( Late 2013) Sierra Version 10.1.1 (12603.2.4)

I retain some downloaded files in the Downloads folder for short term reference, before deleting or saving as text documents.

Can the file names automatically shown when downloaded, be changed to more personally useful identifying names when in the Downloads folder.

    Yes. They are just files like any other files. You can certainly rename them the same way you rename other files.

    Thanks Gary.
    Just in case it helps other ” still learning ” users, changing names is available by accessing Finder, then Downloads, then usual two clicks on the initial file name. Not as I persistently attempted through the Downloads icon in my Dock Bar !
