Rename Multiple Files Simultaneously in Windows

You can rename more that one file simultaneously in Windows.

The trick is to select all the files you want to rename. You can also select any files in a folder by using the CTRL key.

Now, right-click any one of the selected files and select rename.
Type a name for the file.
You can also use the F2 key to rename files.

Once the process of renaming is complete, the names of the selected files will also change to the typed value, except that numbers will be appended to that name.

You can also control the starting number in the series. To achieve this, type a number you want to start with in parenthesis after the filename, while renaming a file.

For example, if you type "Vijeesh(7)" as the name, the other files will be numbered from "Vijeesh(8)"..... respectively.
