If you have just one function, what is your goal in changing the name of this function?

No, please do not do this. Inserting an index in a name is always a bad idea.

Please explain what you actually want to achieve. Perhaps this helps, but usually the are better solutions:

for counter = 1:6
  fcn = str2func(sprintf('editwin%d', counter))
  feval(fcn)  % for example
