Renames Files Using Any Pattern With Drag & Drop Renamer

DnD Renamer enables user to rename files in bulk using a specified pattern. It offers a list of parameters which can be applied to rename or to perform other batch operations via simple drag & drop. The application can be used for replacing a file with the original file name, replacing file(s) with the auto-generated serial number, by a user-defined filter and according to day, month, year, hour, minutes, seconds respectively.

To rename file(s), create a copy or perform an action by a specified order, it require users to add a parameter as per their liking . Supported parameters are as follows:

  • %n – Replaces the selected file(s) with the original file name.
  • %d – Replaces the file(s) with the serial number if more then one file is dropped.
  • [dd] – [mm], [yyyy], [hh], [ii], [ss] allows sorting files in the date month, year, hours minutes and seconds format.
  • filter: – This action applies filters on the file name and is case sensitive.

You can for instance rename files by removing  pre or post fixes. The screenshot below is exhibiting removal of postfix _2 from selected files. Once the filter is entered, just drag the files over the defined area to begin batch renaming.
