Bend a strip

Perhaps it is a simple question. But I am not able to solve it. I am trying to create a " C " shape by bending the strip on which I marked the bend marks using the knife tool. But when I try to select the top edge or the whole upper face to bend, it never bends as intended. It would nice to know how to make 2 simple bends along the knife marks to make a shape that looks like " C ". Thanks.

What exactly are you doing to bend and what exatctly is failing?

If you want a round β€œC” you will more geometry, i.e. more cuts.

If you want a rectangular β€œC” you don’t need to bend. Just delete the upper and lower polygon and extrude the edges you made with the knife tool to the left.

Thanks. It works. How can we " hold " an edge or face and rotate the rest of the object ? For example, would it be possible to " hold " the upper cut in the strip and bend the rest of the strip downwards based on the cut act as a hinge ?
