I am brand new to Scrivener and this is my first book. While nervously entering the title for my manuscript, my finger hit "enter" and now I don't know how to correct and revise to full title. I certainly appreciate your help. I feel certain that the tutorials do not cover something this dumb.

Easiest way is to just close the project and rename it in Windows Explorer.
Thanks in advance for your patience with this non- techie user

You can decide the exact title of your book later. What you did was just to give the project a working name.

Have you done the interactive built-in tutorial?

Go to Project -> Meta-Data Settings -> Project Properties
There is a field there called: Project Title.
That's it.
