    1. go to doc lib > action > open with windows explorer.
    2. go to my computer > tools > map a network drive.
    select a drive letter & put this in folder:
    http://url till sitecollection name.
    (do not include pages/default.aspx or allitems.aspx & use / & not \).

    it resides it the content database which is attached to this site collection, you can view db name from central administration.
    rename & delete  appears in the fly out menu of the document.
    go to ur library > (make sure you have chosen NAME as Linked to document with EDIT Menu FROM VIEW > MODIFY THIS VIEW).
    inthis menu u'll find numerous options including delete and for rename: click edit properties > change name.
