Can I change an H+M project file (.hmxp) name?

Is changing the file name just a matter of renaming it in Explorer?

Yes, that is fine. If you're going to be generating CHM files it's best if the project name does not contain any spaces or non-alphanumeric characters. For some CHM functions it's best if the project filename matches the CHM filename exactly, and the ancient Microsoft CHM system does not handle filenames containing special characters well.

Thanks - nope, no CHM - just WebHelp + PDF (and Word occasionally for internal review).
