rename MySQL table in phpmyadmin

I'm trying to rename a table in phpmyadmin. Can't see how to do it.

Do I have to export contents, drop & start from fresh?

I'm HOPING it's not that difficult.

Go up to the db level. Click the edit pencil next to the table name

If you select the table there is an option "Operations" (like view, search, insert). Click that and there you find the rename/move option

And then what? I had already tried that. I then clicked "Operations" It want's to insert a new table.

Rename is NOT an option
