Rename option greyed out when trying to rename folders under favorite folders

How do I rename my folders in My Favorite Folders in Outlook? The option to rename is greyed out when I right click.

Which folders are you trying to rename?

If it is the default folders (Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items, etc...), you cannot rename these folders. Subfolders or customized folder can be renamed
