Rename multiple files at once

When you download photos from your Digital camera, they often have unrecognizable names. You can rename several similar files at once with following procedure. This also works for renaming other types of files,

1. Open the My picture folder. (Click start, then click my pictures.) Or open another folder containing files that you want to rename.

2.Select the files you want to rename. If the files you want are not adjacent in the file list, press and hold CTRL, and then click each item to select it.

3. On the file menu, click Rename.

4.Type the new name, and press ENTER.

All the files in the series will be renamed in the sequence using the new name you type. For example, if  you type birthday, the first will be named birthday and subsequent files will be named Birthday (1), Birthday (2), and so on. To specify the starting number for the series, type the starting number in the parentheses after the new file name. the files in the series will be numbered in the sequence starting with the number you type. For example, if you type Birthday(10), the other file will be named Birthday (11), Birthday (12), and so on. so reduce your effort, save your time and enjoy . . . VOILA x]
