As I use the save function a lot, to either go back and to things differently, or other various things. I often find the save names incredible hard to distinguish from each other.

Is there a way to rename the save files, or change how the save files are named?

There's a mod for savefile management. I think it lets you separate out different characters among other things. Maybe I'll try it tonight. – David B Nov 21 '11 at 20:08
@David B — Sounds interesting. Got a link? – Ben Blank Nov 22 '11 at 6:47
Hesitating because I haven't tried one yet, and I hear the steam patch might break all of these tools. However, I'm downloading this one right now. – David B Nov 22 '11 at 7:30

In the console, use the save "<file name>" command.

You can open the console with the tilde key ~, or the ² key on international keyboards.
