Bug Description

I haven't learned all of Byobu's hotkeys yet, and I often forget the key used to rename windows. So I tend to open the help and quickly scan the list looking for "Rename"...but it's not there...and I look past "Change..." over and over again, before I finally see "Change the current window's name".

The two most important words, "Change" and "name" are far apart, and "Change" by itself could refer to changing many things, so phrasing it this way makes it unhelpful for quickly scanning through the list.

If it were called "Rename window," it would be much easier to find quickly in the list.
