Rename Jupyter Notebook Files
There are two ways to rename
Jupyter Notebook files:
- from the
Jupyter Notebookdashboard and
- from title textbox at the top of an open notebook.
To change the name of the file from the
Jupyter Notebook dashboard, begin by checking the box next to the filename and selecting
Rename. A new window will open in which you can type the new name for the file (e.g.
jupyter-notebook-interface.ipynb). Then, you can select
Rename to apply the name change.
You can also change the name of an open
Jupyter Notebook file by clicking on the title textbox at the top of your notebook (e.g.
jupyter-notebook-interface) next to the
Jupyter logo. Then, you can simply type in a new name into the title textbox and select
Delete Jupyter Notebook Files
You can delete
Jupyter Notebook files (.ipynb) from the dashboard by selecting the checkbox to left of the filename and then selecting the red trash can button that appears in the top left of the dashboard menu.
If you have selected multiple
Jupyter Notebook files (.ipynb), clicking on that red trashcan button will delete any file that is checked in the list.
Move Jupyter Notebook Files
You can move
Jupyter Notebook files using the Dashboard. To move a file, first make sure that the notebook is not actively running. If the notebook is running, shut it down. To
Shutdown a Jupyter Notebook file (.ipynb), click in the checkbox to left of the filename. You will see an orange button named
Shutdown appear in the top left of the dashboard menu. You can click on it to
Shutdown any file that is checked in the list.
After the notebook is shutdown, you can click in the checkbox to left of the filename and select
Move. You will be asked to provide the path to directory to which to move the file.
Download Jupyter Notebook Files From Local Jupyter Dashboard
Sometimes you may want to share your notebook with others in a format that does not require
Jupyter Notebook such as an HTML (
.html) version of your notebook. This format can be very useful as it displays your Markdown, code and rendered results, just like in your notebook file. However, this format can be opened by anyone that has an internet browser.
Note that the
.html file does not actually require the internet to render. It requires an internet browser such as Chrome or Firefox to render the file.
To download your
Jupyter Notebook file (.ipynb) to an
.html file, you can use the Menu:
|File → Download as -> HTML (.html)|
Download Jupyter Notebook Files From Jupyter Hub
In addition, there may be future occasions in which you will use the cloud-based
Jupyter Hub environment to complete your work, and thus, you may want to download those notebooks locally to your computer. If so, you can download any
Jupyter Notebook file (.ipynb) to your local computer using the Menu:
|File → Download as -> Notebook (.ipynb)|
