Editing a Store View

Because the view name appears in the language chooser, you might eventually want to change the name of the default view to something more descriptive. The Name field is simply a label and can be easily changed.

If your Magento installation has a multisite or multi-store setup, do not change the store Code field without verifying that the value is not referenced in the index.php file. If you do not have access to the server to examine the file, ask a developer for help.
