I use the pre-defined "Programs" button. In the menu that button gives me, there is an item "Windows System" that Windows (10) actually calls "System Tools".

Why the name change? And it appears difficult if not "dangerous" to try to rename the folder in TLB.

How come?

I've reproduced this. This is really strange folder "System Tools" Smile I'll try to fix this.

There is a safe way to "rename" any file/folder:
Right-click item and select Appearance->Button Properties. You can write anything into "Button Label" field. There are no restrictions for some special symbols.

Yuri, little update: I can go through and change the menu items' labels using Button Properties fine, but the Auto Arrange doesn't read the adjusted label, it reads to "old" label.

Auto arrange will use the labels in the next version. Thank you for pointing this out.

As for mysterious "Windows System". The real folder name is really "System Tools". But it is possible to char "display name" for any folder in Windows (using desktop.ini file). And this folder have display name "Windows System". I don't know why, bu MS decided this name is better Blush
