# SYNTAX
Rename-ItemProperty [-LiteralPath] <string> [-Name] <string> [-NewName] <string> [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Exclude <string[]>] [-Filter <string>] [-Force] [-Include <string[]>] [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [-UseTransaction] [<CommonParameters>]

Rename-ItemProperty [-Path] <string> [-Name] <string> [-NewName] <string> [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Exclude <string[]>] [-Filter <string>] [-Force] [-Include <string[]>] [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [-UseTransaction] [<CommonParameters>]

# DESCRIPTION
The Rename-ItemProperty cmdlet changes the name of a specified item property. The value of the property is not changed. For example, you can use Rename-ItemProperty to change the name of a registry entry.

# PARAMETERS
-Credential <PSCredential>
Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

Type a user name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01", or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

This parameter is not supported by any providers installed with Windows PowerShell.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? true (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Exclude <string[]>
Omits the specified items. Wildcards are permitted.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Filter <string>
Specifies a filter in the provider's format or language. The value of this parameter qualifies the Path parameter. The syntax of the filter, including the use of wildcards, depends on the provider. Filters are more efficient than other parameters, because the provider applies them when retrieving the objects rather than having Windows PowerShell filter the objects after they are retrieved.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Force [<SwitchParameter>]
Allows the cmdlet to rename a property of an object that cannot otherwise be accessed by the user. Implementation varies from provider to provider. For more information, see about_Providers.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Include <string[]>
Specifies only those items upon which the cmdlet will act, excluding all others.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-LiteralPath <string>
Specifies a path to the item property. The value of LiteralPath is used exactly as it is typed. No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes escape characters, enclose it in single quotation marks. Single quotation marks tell Windows PowerShell not to interpret any characters as escape sequences.

Required? true
Position? 1
Default value
Accept pipeline input? true (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Name <string>
Specifies the current name of the property to be renamed.

Required? true
Position? 2

-NewName <string>
Specifies the new name for the property.

Required? true
Position? 3
Default value
Accept pipeline input? true (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters? false

-PassThru [<SwitchParameter>]
Returns an object representing the item property. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Path <string>
Specifies the path to the item to be renamed.

Required? true
Position? 1
Default value
Accept pipeline input? true (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]
Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]
Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-UseTransaction [<SwitchParameter>]
Includes the command in the active transaction. This parameter is valid only when a transaction is in progress. For more information, see about_Transactions.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false
