Rename Mutliple Files

Yahoo! Tech has a cool tip on renaming multiple files at once; this comes in handy especially when you want to rename a huge collection of digital photos (IMG4567.jpg) to something discriptive like (Birthday (1).jpg.
  • Once all the files you want to rename are highlighted, press F2, or right-click on one of the files and select Rename. All of your file selections will disappear except for one, but don't panic: Type in your new name and click Enter. That's it! One file will be now be named "renametext" and the others will have sequential numbers in the format of "renametext (1)" and "renametext (2)" and so on. File extentions like .gif, .jpg, or .doc will all be intact, so you can rename multiple types of files at once even if the formats aren't the same.

This definitely comes in handy since I can manage my digital collection.
