How to Change Project Name in Microsoft Project

The other day I did a quick Project timeline brainstorming with a client, placing all the tasks into the list and did a quick save and the saved file default named to “Project1”.

After restructure all the tasks and got the timeline, usually we will do a print out of the project, and we found the printed sheet shown Project Name and Project1. It took us a while to find out where to change the Project Name, tried to look into “Project Information” and wish there is a field for us to change Project Name, but no luck.
