Lesson 12. Managing Web Sites > Renaming a folder

Renaming a folder

Now you'll rename the pix folder, and see how changes made inside GoLive automatically update your desktop.

1.
In Windows, resize the GoLive application window to half of your screen size. Keep the site window in view.

2.
In both Windows and Mac OS, open the pix folder through your operating system, and reposition the window so you can see its contents. You can do this from the GoLive site window as follows:

  • In Windows, select the pix folder and click the Reveal in Explorer button () on the Main Toolbar. (You can also right-click the pix folder and choose Open > Reveal in Explorer.) Resize the Explorer window and drag it next to the GoLive application window.

  • In Mac OS, select the pix folder and click the Reveal in Finder button () on the Main Toolbar. (You can also Control-click the pix folder in the Files tab and choose Open > Reveal in Finder.) If necessary, resize the window and drag it next to the site window.

You should have both the GoLive and Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac OS) windows visible side-by-side.

3.
In the Files tab of the GoLive site window, change the name of the pix folder to images. Press Enter or Return.

4.
Click OK in the Rename Folder dialog box to confirm that you want to update the files.

Renaming a folder in the site window automatically renames it on the desktop

Go to your desktop and notice how the folder name has changed. GoLive works with your operating system to ensure reliability of the links within your site.

5.
Close the Explorer (Windows) or other windows on your desktop.

6.
Maximize the GoLive window, and choose File > Save to save your work.
