Click on the ReNamer Icon.png ReNamer icon to start the program.

The window shown below - is where you will do most of your processing. It consists of two toolbars which control the Files and Rules. The Rules Area is used to specify the processing for your name changes, and the Files Area is used for displaying the Input & Output file names. As seen from the image, file names are displayed both "before" and "after" the name change.

You create the Rules, which are then used to change the file names. You get to choose the Rules you need and configure them to do what you want. Your Rules can be added, edited, deleted, and moved up or down in the processing sequence. There are four basic steps to processing files in ReNamer. These steps are performed using the several buttons that are explained in the table below.
