    Renaming Visual Studio Project/Solution Files


    I have a Visual Studio 10 Project, and I want to rename both the Project, and the Solution. To do this so far, I have right-clicked on the Project or Solution in the Solution Explorer, then clicked on View, and then Properties Window. I then change the Name field to my desired name for the Project or Solution.

    However, this does not rename all the relevant files. Inside the Visual Studio GUI, everything seems to be renamed correctly, but in Windows Explorer, when I go to the Solution directory, I notice that only the following files have been renamed: OPENSDF File, Microsoft Visual Studio Solution, Visual Studio Solution User Options. The other files have not been renamed and remain with their original name: Visual Studio Solution User Options, VC++ Project, VC++ Project Filters File, USER File.

    Any ideas on how I can rename the Project and Solution so that all the files are renamed too?

    you'll need to rename everything manually.
