RenameStar 2.0 (last freeware version)
Man, do you ever have a lot of work ahead of you. You've collected a large number of files, perhaps thousands, that you need to rename. Maybe they're from your digital camera and have insipid names like, 'IMG_0707.' The thought of renaming each file one-by-one in Windows makes your fingers hurt. What a chore! It doesn't have to be. With RenameStar all you do is select a group of files, type in a name, and then click on a button. RenameStar does all the rest of the work, numbering each file sequentially. If a file is an image type supported by RenameStar's preview, it will be shown as a thumbnail in the lower right corner of the screen when you click on the file. If you want to see a larger preview, right click over the thumbnail.

File Renamer
I wrote this program to allow me to easily rename my digital camera pictures after I downloaded them to my hard disk, though it can in fact be used to rename any files.
To use the program at its simplest just select the files you want to rename, enter the new name you want to use and press the Rename button. All the selected files will be renamed using the entered text followed by a sequential number. The file extension is not changed of course. There are various options you can use to vary the end result. I think the options are self-explanatory so just go ahead and experiment.
