Winsome File Renamer
Winsome File Renamer is a clear-cut Windows application that provides you with some advanced and intuitive functions for rapidly renaming files in bulk. It comes in handy for putting together a collection of music, movies or photos, or just for tidying up the computer, for instance.
Professional-looking interface with a dropbox
The GUI is based on a fullscreen window that shows multiple buttons and menus. Winsome File Renamer also has a small dropbox that stays on top of other windows, which enables you to easily batch rename files by just dropping them in that area while exploring disk directories.
Apart from files, Winsome File Renamer is also capable of renaming folders, so you can select the type of items to take into account. In order to do this, it is necessary to create strict rules that the app will follow to get the job done automatically and, thus, very quickly.
Bulk rename file and folders by creating rules
These rules pertain to the numeric and alphabetic sequence renaming, inserting, deleting, replacing or removing characters from file names, adding the date and time, using tags (in case of MP3 tracks), using EXIF and IPTC data (in case of JPEG photos), and others.
It is possible to create as many rules as needed and to manage them later, as well as to undo actions if you've made any mistakes. Before applying the changes to the file names, you can preview results to make sure everything will turn out well.
Evaluation and conclusion
The software application carries out batch file renaming jobs in record time while remaining friendly on the system resources. It worked out smoothly in our tests, without triggering the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error messages.
Thanks to its advanced, yet approachable rules, Winsome File Renamer should meet the requirements of most users looking to easily rename files and folders in batch mode.
