Total Commander Tip of the Day #5
Your daily Total Commander tip (or as often as I can be bothered).
Renaming a single file/folder is easily done by either the mouse using a long click, or the keyboard using Shift+F6.
The file can be renamed, confirm with either Enter or click the tick box on the right. Escape cancels the rename.
If multiple files are selected then Shift+F6 renames all files. You can use wildcards to change files from *.jpg to *.original.jpg.
You can rename individual files one after the other using the tickbox as shown below.
But to go one step further and put your renaming on EPO, use the Multi-Rename Tool (File-> Multi-Rename Tool… or Ctrl+M).
In the example below it’s very easy to add an extra ‘0’ to the numbering system of the jpg’s. Remove the [N], add a [N#-#], a 0 (zero) and another [N#-#] like the example below. Clicking on [N#-#] Range button allows you to select a part of the name to make it easier than just typing it in.
Hit Enter or the Start! Button and you’re done. A real time saver. You can also add counters, date and time stamps etc. and even save you settings if you want to do similar renames again.
