Good morning,

After got assistance from MS Q&A Jerry Xu, I modified the view and made 'paper clip' on the list to show attachments. But we want column title to be populated as word 'Attachments', not a paper clip, how to make this change? I tried to rename the column title but failed. It seems SharePoint default the paper clip on the title. Your advice will be appreciated again.

    Hi, @Annie ,

    It is a by-design behavior to display a paper clip icon of the attachments column. If you want to modify this, a bit customization work will be needed. Try to insert a script editor web part to the list page, copy and paste the following code and stop editing. It shall work for you.

    You can view the following gif file as a tutorial.

    I attached two scripts. The ChangeAttachmentTitle file is the one I used in the animation. And the showAttachments has the code to also display the attachment file name. I used code from a good blog here. You can use it if you also need similar feature.
