The Multi-Filename Editor allows you to easily edit any number of filenames in an easy to use spreadsheet format and then Rename or Copy them with the press of a button. Microsoft makes it easy to edit the name of a single file. If you want to rename a number of files, it?s back to DOS. You also have to go to DOS if you simply want to make copies of files in the same directory (DOS -] copy *.doc BCK*.doc).
The Multi-file Filename Editor is a shell extension that lets you select files from Explorer. Edit any name with a double click of the mouse. Perform operations like Upper case, Lower case, Proper case and Append on all or a selected subset of the files. Copy, Cut and Paste are available to copy data within the spreadsheet or to and from other programs. Use Find and Replace to change strings within filenames.
By default the editing only occurs on the filename, not the extension. This eliminates the chance of accidentally making a file inoperable. It also makes it easy to append a string to the end of a file name and do Replace All. You can use the file extensions in the editing operation if you desire.
Once you are satisfied with your new names you can either Rename or Copy the files. You can rename files or directories. Copying is limited to files.
