1. Go to Tools->Options->Editor->Code Templates

-> there is no option to change abbreviation

Java: 1.7.0_25; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.25-b01

As a workaround you can alter the abbreviation in the persisted files. 

For example for java code templates alter this file

Lowering the priority, because a workaround exists and editing code templates is seldomly used feature.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
NetBeans IDE 8.2 Release Boss

The abbreviation can't be changed in 8.2.
