SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a user who, instead of editing the Top Level Site in their Site collection, created a subsite, named it "Home" and now wants this moved up a level so that it is their Site Collection Home Page.

Im sure there must be a simple way to do this that I am missing!

Do not think it is possible to move the RootWeb of a Site Collection. In any other hierarchical level than root you can do it with "Manage Content and Structure" http://www.thesharepoint.com/SitePages/Content%20and%20Structure.aspx
