I want to change the name of my project and module. But if I try to rename them Android Studio notify me some errors...

e.g. I want to change the name from "MyApplication" to "AndroidApp" as shown in the image below.
Change project name on Android Studio
In the first rectangle I want to change it in:

AndroidApp ("G:...\Android\AndroidApp).

In the second rectangle I want to change it in:

AndroidApp [AndroidApp-AndroidApp]

edit: This is the log:

Gradle: Project 'AndroidApp' not found in root project 'MyApplicationProject'.

build.gradle:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.5.+'
    }
}
apply plugin: 'android'

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

android {
    compileSdkVersion 18
    buildToolsVersion "18.0.1"

    defaultConfig {
        minSdkVersion 7
        targetSdkVersion 16
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:18.0.0'
}

settings.gradle:

include ':MyApplication'

Correct Answer

This did the trick for me:

  • Close Android Studio
  • Change project root directory name
  • Open Android Studio
  • Open the project (not from local history but by browsing to it)
  • Clean project

If your settings.gradle contains the below line, either delete it or update it to the new name.

rootProject.name = 'Your project name'

Edit:
Working in all versions! Last test: Android 4.2.1 Jun 2021.

You can change the name that is shown in the title bar in the file ".idea/.name".
