File Renamer Basic is a simplistic program designed for both first-time and experienced users, in order to help them easily rename files and folders, as well as edit ID3 tags of MP3 files.

The interface of the application is clean and pretty intuitive. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and access files and folders for processing.

In the list you can check out the original and new name, size, extension, date of last modification along with location of each file. So, you can configure filename properties by including a prefix, unique parameter (numbers, letters, dates) and separator (e.g. dash), as well as by changing the extension.

Furthermore, you can insert text at a specific position or remove characters, use a search-and-replace function (e.g. regular expressions, case sensitive), insert keywords and EXIF keywords, as well as rename lists.

Additionally, you can set File Renamer Basic to automatically copy or move files after renaming them, preview results before applying changes, check or uncheck all files, create and save profiles, enable File Renamer Basic to automatically sort the filelist, change the interface theme, and others.

The program takes up a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a comprehensive help manual with snapshots, quickly applies modifications to files and folders, and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests.

File Renamer Basic doesn't recognize files from the desktop and you cannot move or copy items to that location. The unregistered version has some restrictions (e.g. view log file, undo filename changes, scan subfolders) but they are fair. We highly recommend File Renamer Basic to all user levels.
