Since groups can be created in Yahoo! Messenger to categorize contact list and arrange the contacts in the messenger list according to their locations behaviors etc. there might be times when users need to rename the groups because of any reason. Renaming a group is as simple as creating a new group however it is recommended that you should rename the group only when it is required. Moreover if you rename a group it saves you a decent amount of time and extra mouse clicks that you would have otherwise spent while creating a new group and adding the same contacts into it and then deleting the old group. As a Yahoo! Messenger user if you want to rename an existing group you can follow the steps given below:

  1. Logon to Yahoo! Messenger chat application by providing appropriate credentials in its interface.

  2. Right click on the group that you want to rename at the bottom of the contact list and from the available menu click on Rename Group option.

  3. On the opened box specify the new name of the group in New Group Nametext field.

  4. Once you have provided a new name according to the requirements click on Ok button to save the changes.
