  1. Bug ? - Renaming Files


    This seems to be a bug. Nonetheless would appreciate your resolution to each item.


    1, WIndows 10 - When I rename a file that is not inside a folder, I can readily rename the file with absolutely no issue. However, if I rename a file that is inside a folder, it will always prompt me with “If you change a file name extension, the file might become unuseable. Are you sure you want to change it?”


    So what I did was in View of File Explorer, I put a checkmark on File name extensions. This is to make sure I do not accidentally change the file name extension by virtue of the prompt cited. I still get the prompt even if the file name extension is displayed and I do not change the file name extension for so long as the file is inside a folder.


    So the workaround solution I do is remove the file from the folder to where it is in a non-folder place, rename the file, then load back the file to the original folder where it came from which is where I really want it to be.


    2. Whatever is the resolution to item # 1 above, in Windows 7 we never encounter this issue.

    :)

  3. File renamer utility?

    Is there a good file renamer utility that's safe to use anyone could recommend? I used to use Gizmo's list for app suggestions but this particular application has not been reviewed in several years, so I don't know if those apps are safe to use or not.

    I have many files I need to rename but keep the individuality of the names. For instance, I need to rename all files in a particular folder from yyyy.mm.pdf to AMEXyyyy.mm.pdf keeping the yyyy.mm data unique. Another folder has a ton of files that need to be renamed from yyyy.mm.pdf to Visayyyy.mm.pdf.

    I had all this figured out a month or so back but have already forgotten how I did it using an arcane script in either cmd prompt or powershell, I can't remember which. And now I'm drawing a blank how to do it. Again. smh. So I thought a nice freeware file renamer might help me out.
