When it comes to utilities that can help you rename files on your computer, it’s safe to say that the possibilities are endless. From Java-based, minimalist file renaming apps to comprehensive and even paid utilities that are capable of helping you rename tons of files in seconds with practically zero effort, the Internet has them all.
However, as efficient as most file renaming apps might be, most of them don’t really look the part, and one could very well argue that their looks are not worthy of Windows 10. If that’s the case and you feel the same way, then you might want to check out Bulk File Rename.
It’s a Microsoft Store application that, as its name clearly states, allows you to rename scores of files without lifting your finger for a couple of mouse clicks. Besides the fact that it looks at home on Windows 10 thanks to its black-themed GUI, the app boasts a lot of useful file renaming options and sleek features.
For example, it’s worth noting that you can load files from any folder (even multiple folders at once). This app is all about allowing you to fully customize the new file names while still offering you a way to undo the changes if do so feel like it.
Some really useful renaming options include the possibility of changing the files’ extensions, the addition of custom text (to either the start or at the end of the name, as well as text ending with a number sequence), the removal or the replacement of text, and even clearing the file name entirely.
Taking everything into account, Bulk File Rename is without a doubt a very handy, little app that does its job as intended. It’s modern-looking, very easy-to-use, and should satisfy the needs of all day-to-day users who are constantly having to rename heaps of files. The only downside is the fact that the app displays a few ads on the right part of the GUI, even thought these ads can be easily removed by paying a trivial fee.
