Better File Rename

Rename multiple files quickly and easily.

I hate to admit it, but sometimes I’m impatient. Why should I waste my time doing the same thing over and over again? If you’ve ever had to rename more than one file at a time, you know how foolish it is to have to click, pause, click again, type the new name, hit Enter, and then repeat for each file, just to rename them—especially if there’s some sort of pattern to what you’re doing. Unix expatriates will find this procedure especially annoying after using powerful wildcards and other Unix pattern-matching syntax. Better File Rename (well worth the $19.95 shareware registration fee from http://www.publicspace.net/windows/BetterFileRename/) does all you might imagine a file-renaming utility would do, and more. It’s conveniently accessed via the context menu, a right-click away from any group of selected files.
