Rename Folder VMware Datastore Browser

If you need to rename a folder in vmware via Datastore Browser. In my case I copy a Virtual Machine folder to a new VMFS volume and wanted to rename the original folder for the rollback plan encase anything went wrong.

If you try and right click the folder on the left hand side pane to rename it. There  no option to rename it.

Dont worry you can select the top level folder (/) on the left hand pane so that you can see the folder on the right hand pane. Right click the folder and the option is there to rename it.
