How to rename multiple files at once?

Yes in windows operating system we can easily rename more than one file at once as per below example.

For an example if you are following files in a folder with different names.

Images 1.jpg
Abc1232.jpg
Vd00slk.jpg
Csacare.jpg
Gioimaa.jpg

You can change them as follows. (Let’s say you want to name them as “image.jpg”).

Image.jpg
Image(1).jpg
Image(2).jpg
Image(3).jpg
Image(4).jpg

Let me tell you how.

* Go to your particular Folder.
* Select all your files by pressing (Ctrl + A) or select them by highlighting from your mouse.
* Press “F2” key then the cursor will start blinking.
* Give your preferred name for the file and press “Enter”.

Hope this is clear for you.

You have to use the following command in the command prompt to do this.

First of all you have to be there in the folder where you file which needs to be renamed.

Let's say your filename is "test.jpg" and you want to rename is as 123.jpg

In the command prompt type the following:

ren test.jpg 123.jpg.

Hi,

If you can solve these doubt also I'll be very much thank full for you. Could you please tell me Is it possible to remove those numbers inside the brackets which are shown at the end of the file names after I rename them?

Example:

World.jpg

World (1)

World (2)

World (3)

Actually I want to explain you one thing before I answer this. When you keep multiple files in a folder the file names should be unique as its not possible to keep multiple file with same name. So that’s why it shows the brackets to keep them unique. I hope the above will answer your question.
