Default How to rename a network shared folder name (without full remove and re-creation)?

Assume I define a new sharing for an existing folder D:\work\ with a sharing name "sharemywork".

Now a couple of weeks later I decide to rename the share name to lets say "shareprojects123".

Ok, I could completely remove the sharing info and re-create/re-define it again with a different name in
Fodlers Properties-Sharing tab

But this would be very user unfriendly.

Is there another, smarted way to just rename the sharing name and leave everything else in place?
