Rename a VPN Connection in Windows 7

Question: How do I rename a VPN connection in Windows 7? There’s no option to rename it in the Network and Sharing Center or on the taskbar.

This question is asked a lot because there is currently no intuitive way to quickly change the name of a VPN connection in Windows 7.

Answer: Click (left mouse button) the connection icon on the task tray then click "Open Network and Sharing Center" then click "Change adapter settings" on the left of that window then right click the connection and click "Rename".

To recap:
"Network and Sharing Center" -> "Change adapter settings" -> "Rename"

And that is how you rename your VPN connection in Windows 7.

Thanks for this. I'd been getting really frustrated trying figure this out.
