A simple, no-frills tool for renaming computer files, this download works well and produces useful results. After a fast installation process, the software generates a window that offers a variety of options for renaming files. Examples include changing uppercase and lowercase letters, inserting numbers, replacing letters or numbers, changing the time stamp, or adding prefixes, suffixes, or file extensions. A separate function is aimed specifically at MP3 files, allowing users to create new filenames from ID3 tag information such as artist or track name, or to add track numbers. The interface may not be particularly beautiful, but we found the renaming process functioned smoothly, and would recommend the program to anyone who wants a little help creating consistent filenames.
