Fast file renaming

Renaming - the procedure is simple, at what time you have a lesson with one file. And also quite difficult, if the last few dozens or hundreds. You can, of course, get into the command line and also compose some system with ren also a lot of stars and question marks, but it also does not help at all. It's good to eat utilities that solve such a problem. Here, for example, EasyRename (525 KB in the archive). The program allows you to quickly change the names of the extensions of the selected files.

For the source, use the Browse button to select the files for the job. Note that there may be several of them - at that time they will be carried out their batch finishing (then the name of all files will be replaced). The program allows you to configure the replacement of both the name and the file extension. To do this, use the appropriate tabs (Name or Extension). Under the Browse button there are tools for managing the list of objects. Buttons with arrows are designed to move a file higher or lower in the list, but it is similar for ordering them in alphabetical order. The Clear button will clear the list of files selected for renaming.

If you want to change the name of one file, use the Change name to switch and also enter a new file name in the box next to it. But it is allowed to work at once with a whole group of files. In this case, the names of the selected files will be changed, but in addition, at the end of each object name, the number will be added. To do this, you need to mark both switches - Change name to also Enumerate files with starting with (which also means adding a number to the file name). Next to another switch, you need to specify from which number the numbering will start - from scratch or pieces.

Selecting an action with respect to the file extension is allowed in the field located on the Extension tab. The user has the right to choose one of the following options: do not change the extension (Do not change extension) or remove the extension (Remove extension).

If you need to replace the extension, select Add new Extension, but below, in the New extension field, specify the name of the newly added file extension. Another application allows you to assign files to extensions consisting of a pair of extensions at once - the old one is also new. To do this, you need to specify a new extension, then specify the division symbol in the Separator character field, but in the field for selecting an action, choose one of the following options: Integrate extension using separator character (new standard extension with character will be changed) after separator character, or Integrate extension using separator character and new extension (the standard extension will also be added).

By selecting Add number as extension starting with new extension, it is allowed to use numbers as file extensions. The file extensions will be numbered according to the following principle: 000, 001, 002, etc.
