Change name displayed for repo in SourceTree on Windows's tabs

How can I change the name displayed for a repo in SourceTree's tabs?

Note that I don't want to change the actual repo's name. This isn't a git question; I just want to display what SourceTree shows me in its tabs.

EDIT: Sorry, yes, Windows.

You can right-click on the bookmark and select Rename.

Funny you should say that; I right-clicked enough on the tab before asking to feel like an idiot, coming back after I looked through the menu options again, as if if I did it enough, it'd finally work. No luck on Windows.

Are you right-clicking on the bookmark or the tab? You should be using the bookmark on the left. Hopefully the screenshot below helps.

Money. Thanks. The width of my bookmarks sidebar had been set to essentially zero, and I stupidly figured Windows didn't have the Mac's bookmark "window". Much better.

Same here. Dragging the (almost hidden) leftmost border reveals the bookmarks pane. Took me some time to find out...

Its quite simple (renaming a tab/tabs). Please refer to the attached screenshot. Note that my sourcetree version is 2.4.8.0.

But just in case the attached screenshot is not accessible - Open new tab in source. In the "New Tab", one should see the list of existing repos/tabs. Right click on a tab, and one should see a Rename option.
