Change Document Library URL Without SharePoint Designer

This blog may help you to change the existing URL when you change the Document Library without using the SharePoint Designer.

This blog may help you to change the existing URL when you change the Document Library. 

Normally, when we create a Document Library in SharePoint, the URL gets created based on the library name like http://servername/sites/libraryname/allitems.apsx
 
So when we change the Document Library title by using Library settings -> Title & Descriptions, the Document Library Title may get changed but the URL never gets changed and it would be in the old library name.
 
If we want to rename the title of List/Library with URL change, we need SharePoint Designer.

But here, we have some other ways to change the URL and Title of the Document Library and please note, this will work only for Document Library.

In my demo, I have one document library called Shared Documents, so I renamed it as Documentum using Library Settings -> List Name.
