Rename root folder not works


I was trying to rename the root folder of my project but when i clicked on Rename nothing happened. I though that maybe the option was not working and i tried to rename a subfolder and a file and it worked fine.

I think that if it’s not possible to rename the root folder maybe that option would be disabled.


There is an issue for this open on the tree view repository.

It seems to be by design, and at least a notification has been suggested to let the user know.
The issue hasn’t had an update since 7th Jul and I can still replicate it (on v124, Win8).

Nonetheless, I’d recommend following / subscribing to that issue to get notified when there’s a change.
