Changing Vertex ID?

Heys guys.
As you can see bellow, each vertex has a number assigned to them, from 0 to [infinity]. Is there a way I can take e.g. vertex 78 and make it 0, essentially assigning a new vertex ID to it?

You can’t change Index of only one vertex.
You need to select at least, two of them, to swap their ID.

In edit mode, make a selection.
Then open Mesh menu > Sort Elements.
Choose a pertinent way to order indices.
