ReNamer Main Outline.png

ReNamer is a very powerful and flexible file renaming tool with the following features:

  • The workflow toolbar makes renaming easy.
  • ReNamer can rename files belonging to different folders (or even different computers) at a time.
    You can also filter the contents of the folders before renaming.
  • ReNamer offers extensive set of rules for renaming. Each rule has controllable parameters.
  • ReNamer can stack multiple rules in any sequence and apply in that order.
  • ReNamer provides full preview  (the affected file names can be highlighted).
  • ReNamer allows you to try out the stack of rules on user-defined text
    (this allows safe experimentation, without risking real files).
  • ReNamer can automatically handle name-conflicts arising from the renaming.
  • You can save the stack of rules as a "preset" and re-use it later with a keyboard shortcut.
  • ReNamer can rename folders also.
  • ReNamer can rename Windows network (neighbourhood) files also.
  • ReNamer can use RegEx (Regular Expressions) for the renaming.
  • ReNamer supports Unicode filenames (e.g. Asian scripts, Cyrillic, French, Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, etc).
  • ReNamer allows scripting (Pascal Script) to create complex renaming logic
    (many scripts are available at the Forum).
  • ReNamer can extract a large variety of meta tags from files and use them for the renaming.
    (e.g. ID3v1, ID3v2, EXIF, OLE, AVI, MD5, SHA1, CRC32, etc)
  • ReNamer can export/import the renaming-related information.
  • ReNamer can take automatic actions based on outcome of renaming operation
    (e.g. clear off all successfully renamed files from the pane, but retain the problematic files)
  • ReNamer can be run in command line mode, with lots of parameters.
    This allows you to select your files in explorer (or any other application) and do one-touch renaming.
