Multi-file Filename Editor Overview

 

Up HelpFile

 

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, itís 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. You can edit any name with a double click of the mouse. You can also 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. You can 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 that you might accidentally make 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.

If you append path information to the new file name, i.e. rename abc.txt to xyz\abc.txt, and xyz exists as a subdirectory of the current location of the files, a Copy will make the new copy of the files in the subdirectory while a Rename will move the files to the subdirectory. If the subdirectory does not exist the Rename or Copy will fail.
