Make it possible to remove and/or rename the default tabs (files & notes)
It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename the default tabs. A lot of times files / notes are too generic names for the tabs, so renaming would be really helpful then. :-)
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this feature request has been declined.

Also (a bit outside the scope of this item perhaps) I noticed that naming conventions of these tabs differ when I open them in OneNote app. I have a "General_Notes" and "<channelname>_Notes but a newly created channel for which I added a OneNote tab has a "<channelname> - Onenote" so not _ but instead "_-_" _=space and the latter part is the tab name I created it with.

Possible a transition thing but older channels have a "OneNote" tab that cannot be removed whereas new channels don't start with a "OneNote" tab and when created that tab can be removed.

Having multiple sync'd folders called 'Shared Documents' is not so good. Not to mention the use of the space. I like to rename the default document library. But then the link is broken.....

Agree. Multiple options for "official" file storage is confusing. The ability to disable/remove the files tab would be helpful.
I 100% agree with this comment: Agree! We have existing team SharePoint sites we want users to create tabs to. Having this default Files tab is only going to cause confusion and introduce the opportunity for users to be adding files to two different places.
I was thinking maybe I could change the tab to 'scrapbook' or something like that...
that was me who accidentally flagged this as inappropriate, didn't mean to do that. I would like "files" to immediately be pulled up in teams when you click on the team so I can access my uploaded files quicker when I got into a file
In addition, re-ordering the tabs would be helpful

Add attribute for default tab "HIDE"

We use SharePoint for file sharing and don't necessarily want to be saving files using the "files" tab.
Add the ability to delete default tabs such as "files" and "notes", or at least the option to hide them if they are not needed.
