Change layer source

It would be good if it was easier to swap a layer source to a new one in the layer properties where the file location shows. All other settings could be kept.
A change file link button placed at the end of that file reference field would make this task easier.
I have changed file references before using a text editor on the work file, but not the easiest thing to do.

In addition to this, sometimes the data file that I use has a file name change now and then. It is the same data table, but just a name change. It would be good if it was easier to relink these data files up again / swap them out from the file reference in the layer properties.
