    Hi, I just wanted to make a suggestion to add the functionality to rename locked inspector tabs.

    I just learned about the functionality to lock tabs and it's great because I used to find it annoying to constantly switch between inspectors trying to find the asset in the "Project" tab or an object in the "Hierarchy".

    I think it would be much better if we can right-click and rename the locked inspector tabs as well.

    Hey Jonathan so we're tackling this exact problem a different way. In 20.2 (check out the alpha to see it and feedback if you like) you can open a 'focused inspector' by doing right click > Properties on any game object, component, or asset this gives you effectively a by default locked inspector where the tab is named after the thing you opened. Here's a gif!
