All USB devices are named the same?

Here's my issue:

At one point I renamed a USB to SATA adapter to "USB to SATA" and now since then, all devices are named that if they are in the (only) USB port

example:

In this picture, my new USB drive is connected, (first time used) and named USB to SATA.

same for all other devices.

I'm guessing I named the USB port USB to SATA, but I don't know how to change it back to display the connected device's name

Thanks!

Looks like a hard drive label.

Right-Click --> Properties, should have a field where you can rename it.

Strange if there isn't one.

Completely forgot about that.

Wait now I get it. I was using an older USB 3.0 micro B to SATA and it renamed all devices on it to its own name.
