    I am looking for a way to change the name of a file or a directory and still
    have links to the old name directed to the new name. In other words, if I
    click a link to the old name, I will be directed automatically to the file
    with its new name. I am not referring to the 8.3 file name format (e.g.
    "Meaningful name.doc" becomes "MEANIN~1.doc"). I mean a whole new long name.

  2. You can do this in Linux/Unix. The only way I'm aware of how to do it in
    Windows is to create a shortcut with the new name on it, and point it to the
    old file.
