Question

How do I create or rename a filename like ".cproject" in Windows?  I get an error saying "You must type a file name"

Answer

To create or rename a file beginning with a period in windows explorer, type a period, the filename, then another period.  For example ".cproject."  Windows will rename this to ".cproject"

 

You can also use a command prompt, such as git-bash, or cmd.exe to rename the file
