    Not sure what the problem is. Will the dialog box for Partition Name not accept any input at all, or that the name you enter does not "stick" when you close gparted?

    If it's the latter, after you enter the name in the dialog box you have to click on the little arrow in the menu bar to commit (finalize) the change.
    regards

    Partition Name doesnt accept any input at all, it is a grey text box for some reason

    Is it mounted? It seems you're trying to make the change in a running system. Usually we do it in a live session. Depending on which partition you're trying to change you may do it from the installed system but said partition cannot be mounted.

    Yes, that is a live session.

    Now, which partition are you trying to rename, exactly?

    I'm out of here.
    I'm definitely not wasting 20 minutes of my life to watch a video by some random silly college kid.
