downloaded file names

Many updated drivers are available for download and I download and open them from a special file"My Downloads". In case I may need them again I retain them there. However some of the file names are gobbledeegookish and bear little relation to the application. Is it safe to change the name to something more obvious keeping any file extension? if not would creating a 1item folder be safe and achieve my aim?

I haven't had any bother yet with d/l's that I have changed their filenames to something I will know later,although I have only recently started doing this as its annoying when (later) you have to open files to find out what it is.

Yes perfectly safe as long as you don't change the extension.
