Renaming and removing files

To rename files go to menu Action Options Batch Replace. Check Option: Rename in File Names.

You may check or hide selection from options: Rename In File Names, Rename in Folder Name. Thus if you just need to rename files you may check only the option Rename in File Names.

For example, you have files:
Test1.txt
Test2.txt
Test3.txt
Go to Batch Replace tab on the main window.
Specify search for: Test
Replace with: Exam
Press Execute button.

The renamed files will be the following:
Exam1.txt
Exam2.txt
Exam3.txt

You may also use regular expressions to rename files.

You may remove unneeded files. For example if you need to remove test.txt file.
Then specify Search For: test.txt
Replace With should be empty.
You should also check Use Whole Words option.
