Windows 10: anyway to change the names of apps pinned to start menu

    anyway to change the names of apps pinned to start menu


    Windows 10 out of the Edge Browser allows almost anything to be pinned to Start Menu which is great but many of the names are too long, so once again, can names of apps be changed that are pinned to start menu?

    Thanks

    You would have to create a shortcut of the item first, rename the shortcut, then pin that to the Start Menu.
