What will happens if rename your repo on GitHub but in your Git version control still fetching from the old remote url?

How can I keep this in sync? e.g In my GitHub repo used to call "A_FOLDER" but I've decided to change to "B_FOLDER". In git version control still pointing to "https://github.com/me/A_FOLDER.git" but what I want is to be able to commit to the new repo. What is the best possibly ways of doing this?

Thanks in advance...

change the origin in your git remote

git remote set-url --add [--push] < name > < newurl >
