Feature request #12803
Renaming ability for SHP (and others?)

Currently there is no way to rename a shapefile other than code within QGIS or any other open source application.
Taking from applications such as ArcCatalog, which could be likened to the QGIS Browser (and browser window), the ability to right-click on a shapefile and rename it would be a welcome addition for data maintenance.
