path name error?

Hello, I'm using Photoshop well and I'm preparing for the photoshop-related test. But I think there's a problem with my photoshop. If I set up a pass and make the desired shape with the pentool mode, the name '○○○shape path' has not been erased. I'm embarrassed that I can't copy even if I want to change the name by copying it. However, if you use Pentool in path mode, it was automatically copied. Also, I looked up if it was because of the different pass settings, but I didn't have any. My friend is also using Adobe's Photoshop, which is an adobe product, and when he uses the shape tool like me, if he modifies the name, the pass is automatically copied and saved.
Why doesn't the path name change even in shape mode? Is there a problem with the Photoshop I use?

One cannot rename a Shape Layer’s Vector Mask (though one could rename the Shape Layer itself), double-clicking it and entering a name should create a new Path.

You can duplicate the shape layers vector Path in the Paths Palette and name it anyway you like. It will just be a named Path in the Paths Palette. Not a vector layer mask it could be  use to create a vector layer mask on a layer. Or stroke the path in a layer  or wrap text about it in a layer.

 

A Shape layer vector path is only displayed in the Path Palette when the shape layer is the Active layer. Listed as "Layer Name Shape Path"

On Window 10 If I open a new Document select the pen tool.  Then in the Tool Option bar I set Shape, set  fill  to a  solid color, set strokes color and size. With the first pen click on document canvas Photoshop add a new shape  layer tho the document layer stack with the a Layer Name "Shape 1". And in the Paths Palette a path "Shape 1 Shape Path" this path is only in the Paths Palette when layer Shape 1 is the current target layer.
