URL rewrite after renamed the categories

After I renamed some of the categories, I went to refresh the cache and see if the URL will reflect the new category name or not, but unfortunately, is not working. I did rename the categories in both root level and store level. Anyone know whether is possible to do this or not? If yes, what should I do?

THanks a lot

Updated: Found the solution by myself - need to remove the original URL key first -

Update 2: If I change the category of a product, the existing old link still reamin showing in the URL management and old link still work: for example: - shouldn’t the old link updated automatically to the new one OR the old one got removed???
