How to change a local repository name on GitHub for Windows

I’m currently using GitHub for Windows to track a few local repositories. However, I’m having a slight problem: whenever I drag and drop a folder I want to track into the UI, the repo automatically takes the name of the folder.

E.g. the following repo is based on a folder called “v2”:

  • error: git-credential-osxkeychain died of signal 11
  • Git refuses to reset/discard files
  • “git svn fetch” fails, ls-tree dying because of missing tree object
  • Does Git Support “Copy To” a Tag?
  • git move locally committed changes to the new branch and push
  • GIT: What happens during branching?
  • Example repo name

    How can I change the repo name to better reflect the project name, without modifying the target folder?

    Thanks a ton!
