    Though I have enabled write access on media card documents, I get an error message that it's impossible to change the file name. How can I not have permission to change my file names?

    How exactly are you trying to rename the file?

    One possibility is using the terminal emulator if you prefer old school stuff

    bbf100:/ $ mv --help
    usage: mv [-fivn] SOURCE... DEST"

    -f force copy by deleting destination file
    -i interactive, prompt before overwriting existing DEST
    -v verbose
    -n no clobber (don't overwrite DEST)

    bbf100:/ $


    Other possibility is using a file manager (my fav is total commander).
    I see two cases when it's impossible to rename a file:
    1) read only access (i believe Oreo made it harder and if it's an older file manager, it can have issues)
    2) there is an exclusive lock on the file (open by a running app). In this case a restart should fix it

    As the error message indicates, access the menu (lower right hand 3 dots) and choose 'Enable Write Access' and then browse to the SD card to allow the permission.

    All that is insanely excessive. Might just be easier to, you know, follow the already installed app instructions lol.
