Revision history [back]

Wikipedia article's are renamed by Moving the article. The Move function is available from a dropdown at the top right of a page, next to the search box.

(The Move function becomes available to accounts that have about 10 edits and are at least 3 days old, so you may not be able to move a page when you first get started on Wikipedia.)

To move the page, enter the new title and an explanation for the move.

Also pay attention to the namespace dropdown; if you are simply retitling an existing page, you should make sure the namespace is the same one the article is currently in (unless you intend to move it from a sandbox to a live article, for example).
