You can also press F6 which puts focus on the sheet tab at the bottom, then press application key and "R" for rename. The application menu here also allows you to insert sheets, delete them or copy/move them.

Your new favorite keystroke is Insert shift S.Â This opens that
context menu and allows you to do all those things for the given tab
or to add a new tab.

I am using Windows 10, JAWS 2021 and Exscel 2016, which I just
upgraded from Office 2007.Â I can no longer get JAWS curser to read
the line at the bottom of a spread sheet where the list of sheets is.Â
How do I copy a sheet and add it to the end of the sheets in a
workbook.Â I use to do this with the context menu and the JAWS curser.
