So, we have a channel in Teams, and a folder connected to the channel in TeamSite. We can change the name of the channel, we can change the folder name in the SharePoint TeamSite. But we couldn't change the title (or how do you call it?) of Files tab in MS Team. Where does this come from? How do I change it? Please have a loot at attached screenshot.

Hi!

AFAIK, this can’t be changed even changing the tab name. Microsoft are working on it per this uservoice

It isn’t recommended to change the name of the folder in the SharePoint end otherwise it may cause issues.

Would just recommend creating another channel at this time!

Hope that answers your question!

Best, Chris
