    In Visual Studio, you could quickly change your project's namespace by following these steps:

    Step 1. Open your MAUI project in visual studio.

    Step 2. Use the Ctrl+Shift+H shortcut keys to open the Replace in files window.

    Step 3. Fill in the above input field with the namespace you need to replace, such as MauiApp10. Then, in the input field below, fill in the new name you used to replace the original namespace, such as MauiAppRenamed.

    Step 4. Click the drop-down arrow in the input box on the right side of File types and select !*\bin\*;!*\obj\*;!*\.*.

    Step 5. Click Replace All button.

    After that, You would see that MauiApp10 has been automatically replaced with MauiAppRenamed throughout the project.

    Step 6. Right-click your project in Solution Explorer and select Rename to replace it with a new name, such as MauiAppRenamed.

    For class libraries, you could replace namespaces with the same steps.
