Windows does provide ways of renaming your files. You can rename files from your Windows/File Explorer or via MS DOS (command prompt). Windows PowerShell also offers a renaming cmdlet. The only problem with these methods is that you can only rename files one by one. There might be complex batch renaming MS DOS commands and PowerShell cmdlets that allow you to rename your files, but they don’t seem to be able to pick your file properties or are too complex to execute: you will have to create a text file list of names for the computer to use and your current files must be in a certain format. Eventually these methods do not help in saving your time
