This nice little program makes it very simple to rename files of any type. I have used it to rename DS1 image file names to DS2 image file names. I was able to rename all the DS1 type one armor images to ds2 type six armor images in under two minutes.

Thank You J. Falcao



This one will let you rename all your files like with the DOS command,
but with a lot more options. You can :
batch rename all files and/or folders,
add string to beginning or end of filenames,
remove string from all the names to rename,
change all the file extensions,
numerate all filenames sequentially,
convert all to uppercase / lowercase,
trim 'x' characters from beginning or end of filenames,
replace spaces inside filename to anything else
or eliminate all spaces,
replace one string from the name with any other,
change file and folder creation/last written dates,
add date and/or time to filename,
and much, much more...!

Can work with one or multiple folders.
Remove or add individual items from file list.
Select multiple files from Open dialog box.
Supports Drag and Drop from Explorer to Renamer's window.
Renames directories (only from drag and drop).
Renames shortcuts' names.
Sort files by file date, name or type.
Also has infinite 'undo' function for all renames done, so it is safe
to test at will, as you can always undo all changes made..

Remembers last renaming strings, and new file extensions can be
added to be used next time.

Accepts a command line with the format
'renamer.exe '
always as a pair of names 'old'--'new' , as many as you need, separated
by spaces.

And it can create a new windows explorer context menu item so that
you can right click on Explorer and directly send all selected files
or directory names to be renamed into the program.

You can also create 'scripts', combining several options to be
applied in one go, so effectively creating brand new options to
rename all your files. To do this, you just select options like
if you were renaming a file, and press the 'Add Line' in the
script editor; then you select another options, and press the
'Add Line' button again, and so forth until you are happy with
the result. Choose a name for the script, and it will always be
available as a new option, from the drop down list.

Uses translation to diverse languages - for now only English
and Portuguese, but if you want to contribute with other translations
just email me with the translated strings.

Install / Uninstall

I never liked programs that install files all over the hard disk;
To install the program, you only have to copy the files to a suitable
directory, and then run it from there.

To uninstall, you only have to delete the directory you created and
the files within, and... that's all !

Please note: if you have used Renamer's popup menu to create an Explorer
context menu item, use it again to remove that same item, before deleting
renamer's folder, ok?
