Rename project folder

Answered

Neither renaming the project (File > Project Structure > Project name) nor the module (Refactor > Rename) changes the folder name at /Users/USERNAME/IdeaProjects.

Must it be done manually or is there a way in-app?

You can rename from inside the IDE via "Project files" view of the project tool window:

I just tested on a new project. It was originally named "untitled" and I used Refactor to rename to "untitledRenamed", but the folder remained "untitled"; see attached screenshots.

See the top pink arrow on my previous screenshot. 

It is needed to choose "Project files" in the dropdown where you have "Project"
