    Currently, the options for managing files (when you press the gear icon), include:

    • Download
    • Rename
    • Move
    • Delete
    • Share to Commons


    It would be great to also have an option to update or re-upload a file. This function is available when you upload a file by the same name, but if you want to upload a file that does not have the same name, you have to work around the system (see my response to a related question).
