You can change the name of the ques and rec files directely in the folder (ie with files closed). It is important that you have exactly identical names of the qes and rec files. I would recommend that you first make a copy of the original qes and rec (right-click --> copy. Right-click again --> paste) files and then change the names of the copies (they will br named "Copy of yourfile.qes" and  "Copy of yourfile.rec"

I would like to change the title of an existing QES- file and REC file- without losing data. Is it possible ? How can I do that ?
