Open the component in the build tab, click on the name and enter a new value. Any process currently using the
component will not be affected negatively, as the process recognizes the component ID, not the name.
And like Pete McCoy mentioned ' Any process currently using the component will not be affected negatively '
It won't impact any existing functionality but when you gets to Comparing deployment version , you will see this change. So nothing to worry out there.
And as a good practice , you can always a one line comment with version number in the description field of the component.
This will help verify whosoever will use the component other than you.
