Rename The Project

Do not attempt to rename a project by changing the project directory name in your file manager (e.g. Windows Explorer). This will not affect that project's name which is buried in the xml files that comprise the project's settings. Although the directory will have a new name, the project will still show the old name when reopened in MPLAB X IDE.
