Rename "My Files" folder

Steve B 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 4

Is there a way to rename the Main Folder that you see at top after logging in from MYFILES to another name and from where can you do this. The earlier versions used to designate this folder name when you set up an account from control panel and could be named specific to the nature of the files

Yes, you will find the "My Files" text entry under the "Main Interface" translation section, inside the "Translation tool" available in the FileRun client area: https://www.filerun.com/client-area/

This applies also to the default English version. You can use a custom English translation file to basically rename any text in the FileRun user interface.

I downloaded the English translation tool and basically there are four entries with + sign in front which the editing guidance states not to touch. "The lines begging with “+–” should not be modified as they represent the section name (Example: “+– Login Page –+”)".

Let me try to explain again. In the past once the home folder path was created ending like this ...system/data/PROJECT1, The top folder under the icon NEW would be named automatically as PROJECT1 based on the home folder path and the folder name you created. Now the default name appears MY FILES despite the folder names that you create. This can be confusing if the user is working on various Projects and all are then named My Files at the Parent folder instead of a specific name assigned to that particular archive. How to edit the Parent folder name "My Files" to what you want it to be for a specific user. Thanks

Having different labels for different users is not technically possible.

What you can do is to not use home folders. Instead, share the folders with the users, using an account that has access to them through the home folder. When sharing, you can choose to have the share appear as a regular folder (check the "Share anonymously" option) and even set an alias for the share, if you don't wish the folder's real name to be used.
