    How to rename an app in UNITY launcher?

    I have installed NEMO, file manager in 13.04 and I have added it my favourites in Unity launcher. The trouble is both Nautilus and Nemo are labelled as 'Files', a bit confusing.

    I want to change the Nemo label to read as 'Nemo', how can I do it?

    Thanks...

    You should be able to edit the title in the .desktop file located either in /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications.
