In ArcGIS Pro 2.6 you cannot right click on a lyrx file and rename it from the context menu as you can on datasets, see image below

It is possible to rename the lyrx file using the Rename geoprocessing tool, but obvious this would be a simple improvement to the ArcPro GUI as well as bring consistency to expected behaviour.


Thank you for submitting this, Duncan!  It is a valid request.

I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of the functionality added in 2.6 where you can get directly to the folder containing the file.  While I understand it isn't what you're requesting in this idea, it might help facilitate renaming the lyrx.


Obviously as you say not quite what I was suggesting but I can see that being quite useful for other scenarios.
