Using ReNamer is very simple. Just follow the four steps shown below.

Step What to do
1 Select the files from various folders and add them to the working area.
  1. Change the default behavior for the "Add Folders" button (optional step).
  2. Add individually selected files (Add Files) and/or all files in selected folders (Add Folders), and/or...
  3. Drag-n-drop files from Windows Explorer (or any other application) into this area (called "Files pane").
2 Add rules to create a sequence of operations. Delete or edit an existing rule. Change the order of the rules.
  1. Allows addition and deletion of rules. Also change the order of any rule in the stack.
  2. Click in this area to add a rule (or to edit an existing rule, or just move it to a new position in the list).
3 Preview the results (check before proceeding with the actual renaming).
  1. Set options (e.g. highlight changed names, experiment with your own text, resolve conflicts, etc.).
  2. Click to see preview of the new file names in the bottom pane (not required in auto-preview mode).
4 Press this button to rename files and folders.

ReNamer is so intuitive that you would be able to use it without reading the manual any further.

The rest of the chapters provide more details on all aspects of ReNamer. Use them as reference.
