How does editing work?

Apologies if I've missed an obvious button, but I cant for the life of me figure out how to change the title of a question I've asked on SO.

If it's not possible then it should be a feature request so the OP can rephrase / avoiding potentially embarrassing typos!

    You did miss something obvious. The edit link.

  • Yes it is. Its the edit link. In fact I just edited this question's title to remove the extraneous single quote you put in the title Jan 26, 2012 at 20:30
  • Thanks! I'd edited a question body text before but totally missed the ability to edit the title!

    You can always edit your post. We like editing so much, there is specific markup in comments that creates a link to edit the commented post--[edit]

There is an edit link towards the bottom of the question, right under the tags:

On the edit page, you can edit the title in the text box at the top:
