Patrick Swesey coded out of frustration one day when he needed to change the filenames of hundreds of TV episodes, but couldn’t find a decent bulk file renamer.
His piece of software, which he called Simple File Renamer, runs on Windows XP through the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. However, his installation file does a funny thing when you try to install it using Firefox – it fails to install.
But it remains the easiest option – if you get past changing your default browser to IE for a second – and are looking for a good way to rename multiple files quickly.
