How Do I Change iCloud Directory Names?

It’s easy to change iCloud directory names, so that I won’t have 2 Documents folders, etc. on my Mac. The only problem is that they won’t stay changed. They revert automatically back to the original name almost immediately. I read somewhere that they could be changed using the information pane, but that didn’t work any better.

    Do you have iCloud Drive, Desktop & Documents turned on? If so, then the Documents folder must be named Documents.

    Why do you want to change it? There would be no confusion since that should be your ONLY Documents folder. If you wish to store local files in your Home folder, just create a folder there and call it something else like “Local Documents.”
