    I downloaded a link to a video that I use for business. How can I change the name of the long link to a short name that people can understand? I.e. from "communications.com/116087b7de825 etc... to "This is my company's video."

    Change it in what app?

    The URL is what it is.
    There are URL shortening services available, but that does not make the URL any more readable.

    If you are putting the URL into a website as a clickable link, most sites will give you the ability to put a "title" or "name" on the link.

    There are a few different ways of doing that, it depends on where you want the link to show. Here? A web browser looking at your site? Something else?

    Here's a link that has different text than the link itself (the link is to this page) - this is the 'changed' name.
