Hello! You can rename the bookmark (under the Local section of the New Tab) by right-clicking on the repository and selecting "Rename". This will rename the bookmark and change the display name of the tab. Make sure you close the tab before renaming it.


It's correct that you can rename it, but if you restart the application - it's back to showing the foldername of the repo.

In earlier versions - it didn't behave this way. I like it a lot when showing the correct name given!

Hi Mike

Could we please have this bug fixed??? - it's SO annoying to start with a rename of all tabs - every day!

Best regards

Exactly, it's so annoying. The issue has been a month already sitting here without any update on the solution. Need this bug to be fixed ASAP. 

Did the developers get the ticket at all?? Do they know about this error??
Everything above a month is a very long time to fix a bug - but again that's only seen from my side of the table - the everyday user....
