fast, easy to use
too basic, could have more advanced functions
couldn't find one. thought I was downloading a file extension renaming program. could be that it didn't show up because i'm on windows 7 and that I just saw a bunch of add-ons
2 toolbars, my homepage reset, tried to download real player, update adobe flash, and Microsoft security essentials warned of 2 viruses running on the computer. wth cnet!
in summary, blah! I can't be the only one with this download. please verify my failure.
None, nada, zip, zilch
1) Too hard to use, re: navigation
1a) Too hard to use, errors out and no explanation or way to mitigate errors (I suspect it was trying to access shiznit it shouldn't and Comodo shut it down so it whined like a little girl)\
*** MALWARE ALERT! *** MALWARE ALERT! *** MALWARE ALERT! ***
2) Changes browser start page - IN EVERY BROWSER YOU HAVE INSTALLED
3) Changes browser search bar choice - IN EVERY BROWSER YOU HAVE INSTALLED
3a) Changes other browser characteristics.
4) OBVIOUSLY - NOT - properly reviewed by CNET.
Don't bother, you'll only spend at least an hour uninstalling and cleaning up all the changes it makes.
View it was MALICIOUS SOFTWARE, because IT DOES CONTAIN IT - see this link to REMOVE IT IF YOU FALL VICTIM TO IT. http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-the-fun-moods-face-moods-hijacker-virus/#comment-4982
Shame on you CNET
Easy to figure out. Easy to use. Does a quick and accurate job.
No Cons. None.
This is just what I was looking for - something to rename groups of files. I have a need to change the extensions of files. So - that's what I was looking for. I downloaded several batch renamers but couldn't figure out how to do this one thing. Then I tried this little gem and had it all done in about 30 seconds. Once the job is done, a before and after shot give you the opportunity to undo.
A great little program.
didn't use it
It requires a version of .net to run. I had a version higher than what was asked for but it wanted me to download a different version.
Did not use it. For bulk renaming just revert back to DOS, go to the directory in a CMD window and type ren *.xxx *.xxx works fine for what I needed.
there are no pros, only promises
It is not operational. It says "cannot create files because the files already exist," and does not convert anything.
doesn't let you input a path with a text box, you have to navigate with the UI to the path each time
Does exactly what you'd expect -- renames the extensions of a group of files. I do wish it let you input a folder path with a text box, it's tedious to have to navigate thru the folder UI each time to the correct folder.
Very feature rich
UI needs some work
Best bulk renamer I've seen
Converted most files quickly.
Missed a few files which I had to do manually.
Clear, simple program. Probably never need again but good for what it's intended for....renaming NOT converting.
It is great for renaming .m4v to .mp4 or vice versa. Or .xls to .txt and many others. If your files need converted then you need to use something else.
None. It is unfortunate the people are giving this poor reviews because it can not "convert". It says right in the description that it does not convert.
This is a superb file extension RENAMER. That's all it does. You use this utility when you have multiple files to rename. It will literally RENAME hundreds of file extensions in just seconds.
