I am using QGIS V3.22.6

I have an attribute table with unnecessary fields that I wish to delete. I also wish to rename some of the fields.

I cannot see how to do this using the Attribute Table Editor.

    What is the type of source data? In QGIS, some types don't support renaming and deleting fields, e.g. KML. Mar 12 at 11:57

using QGIS 3.28.4, you can:

  1. right click on the shapefile showing at the Layers panel select Properties properties
  2. then inside the Fields tab you should select the Toggle editing mode editing

When editing mode is active, you can delete, renames the columns.
