What I’m trying to do

I need to rename my vault…when I follow the steps, I get prompted that I can’t rename an open vault. I’m using Mac. But I can’t figure out how to close the vault…I only have 1 vault.

Things I have tried

Search the forum and Dr. Google for “how to close a vault in Obsidian”…found 1 post on this forum with this advice:

“You would close the vault window like any other app in your operating system. Click the “X” top-right or use your OS keyboard shortcut.”

I don’t see any “X” on the top right. the only “x” i see is in the tabs.

You could try this: Open the Sandbox vault (Help / F1) →

Then close your main vault using the “X”. Top left red stoplight on the Mac.
→ Open the vault switcher from the Sandbox vault (above the (?) icon).
→ Use the three dots next to the vault name to rename it.
