Cool Trick To Rename Bunch Of Files In Windows Xp

Rename Files

Suppose you have to give a good descriptive names to a bunch of files in Windows Xp and all files are scattered with names such as "100_1202.JPG", "100_1203.JPG", "100_12034JPG" and more.

Now you don't have to live with the numeric names your digital cameras and others assigns to pictures it stores.

You can rename a whole photo shoot with a few strokes.
In Windows explorer highlight the range of photos you want to rename, right click , and choose rename from the pop up menu. Type in the new file name such as "XYZ" and XP will apply that name to all the photos you have selected, adding a sequential number after each - "(1)","(2)" and so on - to distinguish among them.
