Hi @wxmkevin,

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our Community organized so users can more easily find information.

As you’ll notice, your Topic is now in the How to use Git and GitHub board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here.

Let me know if you have any other questions or if I can help with anything else.


Hi @wxmkevin,

Currently, you are not able to edit or rename image files in the GitHub web interface. To rename this image file, you will need to do so in GitHub Desktop or rename the file in the command line interface.


Guys, you understand not all github users are all-in programmers, right? Why do I need to download a half-baked piece of software to patch the gaps of your half-baked webpage?

Hi @3dfernando,

I understand your frustration. GitHub itself is developed for programmers as the core audience and is not always the most user-friendly for people who are not primarily developers. While we are working on making GitHub more approachable all of the time, there are still certain aspects that can seem almost obtuse because of how they are designed to work on top of Git itself.

If you’d like to request a change to how GitHub functions, I recommend using the GitHub feedback form which gets submitted directly to our product and engineering teams.
