Renaming folders, subfolders, and files one at a time is hardly an efficient way to go about it. If you want to get things done fast, you must set up a rule and batch rename files and folders based on that rule. That is something you can achieve with a specialized application such as Rename Expert, a handy tool provided by M. & R. Gillmeister.

To get started with Rename Expert, you will have to download a 5.1MB executable. After asking you to pick between English and German, the setup wizard that helps you install Rename Expert will ask you to pick the installation directory and choose if you want a Rename Expert shortcut on your desktop or not. You will have no problems installing the application on top of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

There are two buttons in the upper left hand side on Rename Expert’s interface: Menu and Rename Expert. Hit Menu and you will be able to access the Options menu, check for updates, install and uninstall plugins, and access the Help menu. Hit Rename Expert and you will be able to add the files or folders you want to rename and pick the way in which you want them to be renamed.

With Rename Expert’s help, you will be able to rename multiple files or folders at the same time. There are several renaming options to pick from, like changing the case, replacing a specific piece of text, replacing an area of the file’s name, inserting text/numbering/metadata into a file’s name, and more. You can pick the renaming rules from the dropdown menu in the lower left hand side, under Actions. For any rule you pick you will be presented with a real-time preview; you will get to see how your renamed files or folders will look like before applying any changes.

With a registered Rename Expert version, you will be able to rename as many files and folders as you want. With the trial you will be able to rename a maximum of 10 files or folders.

With its numerous renaming rules, real-time preview, support for Profiles, and undo function, Rename Expert is an exquisite tool for batch renaming files and folders.


Support for English and German is provided; support for Windows 7 and Windows 8 is also provided. The application comes with a good looking and user friendly interface. Batch rename files and folders using a variety of renaming rules. Rename Expert provides real-time previews of your renamed files or folders. You can set up and load Profiles. Undo and Redo are supported.


The trial will not rename more than 10 files or folders at a time.
