Changing multiple files names

Post by Ilikemyprivacy »

I'm sure I'm asking a lot here but is there any chance this program can rename multiple files? Files are usually in alphabetical order and I noticed this program has a great feature where you can change the order the files are in manually (thank you very much) but I was wondering if there is a way to change the order of the files and then change all their names to be in a more permanent order? It can be as simple as numbering every file from 1-whatever but the idea is so the files are in order in a bit more permanent way than just moved through the program.

Otherwise I have to change the name or number of every file and some of these folders can have dozens. Does this make sense?

In the browser, please take a look at Edit > Rename... and see if you can figure out how to use it... :D

Always test using *copies* of files! :wink:
