From this site, also shown in this ClipTraining video

  1. Right click on the tile you want to rename.

  2. Left click on "open file location"

  3. The file's shortcut will appear in Windows Explorer.

  4. Click on the text to change the name, or right-click it and click "rename."

  5. The new name will apply to the tile as well as the file.

I renamed the file, but the tile is not updated. Is there a way to refresh the start screen? –  Chin Nov 12 '12 at 2:06
    
the video seems to show that just pressing windows key should suffice –  Karthik T Nov 12 '12 at 2:30
    
@Chin It is instant –  pratnala Nov 12 '12 at 11:00
    
Some apps/icons don't have option "open file location". How can I rename those apps? –  Ωmega Δ Jan 31 '13 at 20:00
