How do I get started on URL Rewrite? match abc.aspx then rewrite to xyz.aspx

Good day,

I am using IIS 10.0 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, ASP.Net

apparently this doesn't do as I expected it to do. I tried redirect but it gives me an HTTP 404 error, because there is a none existing xyz.aspx on the iis server or resource.

But I just really want to rewrite the abc.aspx to xyz.aspx without really redirecting, is this possible? I tried running this and it just stays still on abc.aspx, please help, thank you.

<rule name="abcRewrite" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="abc.aspx" />
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" />
<action type="Rewrite" url="xyz.aspx" />
