How does one change the name of the file pathway in the Files tab? For example I want to change the File pathway (see image below) from Rebecca Hernandez_Elizabeth DeChavez to Eli Solis_Elizabeth DeChavez. I attempted to change it in the SharePoint settings. However, I receive an error stating the change must be made in Teams.

That looks like it is the name of a Channel in Teams. Every channel get a folder in the default sharepoint document library. Try Changing the channel name or creating a new channel
I have changed the channel name and it isn't reflected in the file pathway name.
