There will be times when you want to rename multiple files and folders together. Renaming each item separately will be a whole mess. So here is a cool technique for renaming multiple items together. There are two ways of doing it: one involving the mouse and the other with the keyboard only.

So here it goes ..

  • Select the items you want to rename.
  • Press F2 or right click one of the selected items and select rename.
  • This will highlight one item for renaming .. rename it to whatever you like.
  • Other items will automatically be renamed altogether using (number) at the end of your first renamed item. e.g, If I rename the first item as “techno” the other items will follow as techno(1), techno(2) and so on.
