Rename files quickly

Renaming is a simple procedure, at what time you have a lesson with one file. And also quite difficult, if the last few tens or hundreds. You can, of course, climb into the command line and also compose some system with ren with a lot of asterisks and question marks as well, but sometimes it doesn’t save 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 and extensions of the selected files.

For the source, using the Browse button, select files for labor. Note that there may be several of them - at that time their batch finishing will be carried out (then the names 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 corresponding tabs (Name or Extension). Under the Browse button are tools to manage the list of objects. The arrow buttons are designed to move the file higher or lower in the list, but it is similar to sort them alphabetically. The Clear button will clear the list of files selected for renaming.

If you need to change the name of a single file, use the Change name to radio button and also in the field next to specify a new file name. 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, an amount will be added at the end of each object name. To do this, check both radio buttons - Change name to also Enumerate files with starting with (which also means adding a number to the file name). Next to another switch, you must specify from which number the numbering will start - from scratch or pieces.

The selection of actions in relation to the file extension can be set 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 want to replace the extension, select Add new Extension, but below, in the New extension field, specify the name of the newly made file extension. Another application allows you to assign files extensions, consisting of a pair of extensions at once - the old and the new. To do this, specify a new extension, then specify a division symbol in the Separator character field, but select one of the following options in the field for selecting an action: Integrate extension using separator character (the standard separator - speck - will be changed to a new one), Built new extension with character after separator character (the extension will be added later than the separator character) or Integrate extension using separator character and new extension (the standard separator will change; a new extension will be added).

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