  1. Batch Name Change in Windows 10


    I have a backup drive that has a large number of files on it and I'm trying to change the names of the files. Example:

    • Current name is: FileNameTitle (2019_06_22 12_06_24 UTC).txt

    I want to get rid of the date and time of the backup but not the preceding text.

    • New name is: FileNameTitle.txt

    Is there anyway to do this without having to go through and rename every single file individually? The backup disc was from an old laptop and I'm trying to copy some files to my new PC, but without the extra bits on the file names.

    Thanks in advance.

    How do I change the network adapter name? (Windows 10)

    Press Windows Key + R, type secpol.msc and press Enter to run it. In Local Security Policy window, go to the Network List Manager Policies in the left pane. Now in the right pane double click on the network name that you want to change. In the Properties windows under the Name section make sure that Name is selected. Now in the input field enter the name that you wish to use for your connection. Click Apply then OK to save the changes. And you might have to log in again or to restart your computer before the changes are applied.
