Can Renamer change other columns in Explorer - other than Name column?

Example:
In case I have couple of url files, and I want to change the URL Path column (apply rules of Renamer on the targets of the url files).
I think this mean, when you drag files from Explorer to Renamer, then the URL Path column is imported to Renamer rather than the Name column.

Re: Can Renamer change other columns in Explorer - other than Name column?

ReNamer is designed for renaming files, not changing the content of files.

Your best option is to open your URL shortcuts in a text editor (for example, Notepad++) and using "Replace in open documents" or "Replace in files" function.

This is what a common URL shortcut file content looks like:

[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://....
IDList=
HotKey=0
IconFile=...
IconIndex=0

Thank you.
I need other rules than "Search and Replace".
Hope there will be planning to improve Renamer to support such things,
or maybe
Analyzer will be improved to support applying rules to bunch of txt files (the first files can be opened each in a separated tab in Analyze DialogBox).
