Rename multiple files
|Top Previous Next|
The point of it
To rename a lot of files at once, in one or more folders. You may have files with excessively long names which do not suit certain applications. Or it is a pain to rename a lot of files one by one.
How to do it
Specify your Folder, whether sub-folders will also be processed, and the kinds of file you want to handle.
The default is All files *.*.
Also specify a "mask for new name" and a starting number.
For example, with a mask of SUN and start number 0, the first file found, let's say it was originally Quite_a_long_and_Complicated_file.txt will be renamed SUN0.txt. The next file would be SUN1.txt,and so on. (If the next was Quite_a_long_and_Complicated_file.htm, that would become SUN2.htm).
When you press "Find Files", you will see a list of all files meeting these choices. If you now press "Rename" each one will be renamed according to your settings.
