There isn't a method to rename it.

Its just past 1am here in UK so gotta go sleep.
Reason is probably because you did not make your own folder. I am sorry, but I do not understand the whole purpose of the excercise anyhow. Maybe you can enlighten me.
I did the following: I created a folder called DT and moved the desktop shortcut into there. Then I used that folder to make the toolbar. Result below when opened - and since this is your own folder, you can rename it.

Unlock taskbar, right click over small dots on the taskbar, uncheck show title.

Yep and I unchecked "show title" - but it did nothing other than a small mess.

That should not make a difference but let us know either way.

No luck there either - maybe it's an Ultimate feature.
