Renaming Files Easily

Oscar's File Renamer renamer.htm
= must have
Software Utility (Win)

The Renamer takes and enhances the idea of editing files in directory in a full featured text editor and then writing all the changes at once into the files.

It works simple: Open Renamer, select directory and the files will appear in the File Name Editor which is a normal full featured text editor with some additional changes (f.e. you can't add or delete line).

You can use all the editor functions like Quick find, Replace, multiple Undo/Redo, Macros and of course normal editing.

Each file is on a new line and can easily move with arrows like in a normal text. When the files you wanted to rename are done simply click Apply Changes and all files will be physically renamed.

Fast Editing of long list of file names - exactly like in a text editor. All changes to files themselves are done at the very end when you press Apply Changes, not during editing.

During Editing you can use Undo/Redo, and various tools like
Upper Case/Lower Case or numbering.

All changed lines are visibly marked.
It doesn't let you enter wrong characters.



A File List shows the original names on the disk.
You can undo changes even after you write to disk.

It doesn't work with files that contain spaces. (I have always said not to put spaces in your file names. Use the underscore "_" character instead.)
