Cannot rename attached files in OneNote

Copper Contributor

OneNote used to allow you to right click on an attached file and rename it.  I've recently upgraded to a new computer at work and have transitioned to the newest version of OneNote.


Why would MS remove the option to rename an attached file.  If I have an email with a long subject line, it would make it so much easier to quickly rename it as "email from John with background".  I've seen lots of posts about saving the file elsewhere with a different name then re-attaching it. That's just silly. Why remove a very easy and functional part of the app.


To be clear, I am not asking how to rename a notebook. I'm talking about a file (pdf, msg) placed into a OneNote section.  Why can't I right click and change the displayed file name. It was a part of previous OneNote versions, please add it back.
