  4. Rename multiple files in entire folder

    Rename multiple files in windows 10

    Hello,

    This is Sudha Independent Advisor and user like you. Please follow below steps to solve your issue

    Method 1: Rename multiple files using the Tab key

    File Explorer (previously known as the Windows Explorer) is a place where you can find all the folders and files that are available at different locations on your PC.

    To rename multiple files using the Tab Key, follow these steps:

    1. Open the File Explorer either from the taskbar or the desktop.

    2. Open the folder whose files you want to rename.

    3. Select the first file.

    4. Press the F2 key to rename it. Your file name will be selected.

    Note: If your F2 key performs some other function also, then press the combination of the Fn + F2 key.

    Note: You can also perform the above step by right-clicking on the first file and selecting the rename option. The file name will be selected.

    5. Type the new name you want to give to that file.

    6. Click on the Tab button so that the new name will be saved and the cursor will automatically move to the next file to rename.

    So, by following the above method, you just have to type a new name for the file and press the Tab button and all the files will be renamed with their new names.

    Method 2: Rename Multiple Files using Windows 10 File Explorer

    To rename multiple files in bulk on Windows 10 PC, follow these steps:

    Note: This method is applicable if you want the same file name structure for every file.

    1. Open the File Explorer either from the taskbar or the desktop.

    2. Open the folder whose files you want to rename.

    3. Select all the files you want to rename.

    4. If you want to rename all the files available in the folder, press the Ctrl + A key.

    5. If you want to rename random files, click on the file you want to rename and press and hold the Ctrl key. Then, one by one, select the other files you want to rename and when all the files are selected, release the Ctrl button.

    6. If you want to rename the files present inside a range, click on the first file of that range and press and hold the Shift key and then, select the last file of that range and when all files are selected, release the Shift key.

    7. Press the F2 key to rename the files.

    Note: If your F2 key performs some other function also, then press the combination of the Fn + F2 key.

    8. Type the new name of your choice.

    9. Hit the Enter key.

    All the selected files will be renamed and all the files will have the same structure and name. However, to differentiate between these files, as now, all the files will have the same name, you will notice a number inside the parentheses after the name of the
    file. This number is different for each file which will help you in differentiating between these files. Example: New Image (1), New Image (2), etc.
