You can't rename files that are read online or are currently opened in the application. First close Microsoft Excel and then locate your file. Once it's located, click on it and on press F2 and type your name. If you still cannot rename it, right click the file and select Properties and uncheck the Read Only option and repeat the renaming process.

Make sure that the file is closed and is not used by any other application before renaming it. If nothing works try restarting the PC.
