Ctrl+LMB on the name

Ctrl-Click it?

They should have added “rename” in the right click menu, as it’s intuitive/expected.

Thank you. I needed to know this too. I was looking for a rename button as well.

wait a second here i change the name for the object in objeft panel and it did not reflect it in the outliner!

so what is this name in the outliner is it mesh or object or what ?

thanks
