Bulk Rename Utility allows you to easily rename files and folders recursively based upon find-replace, character place, fields, sequences, regular expressions, EXIF data, and more.


  • Rename multiple files quickly, according to many flexible criteria.
  • Rename files in many ways: add, replace, insert text into file names. Convert case, add numbers. Remove or change file extensions.
  • Check the detailed preview before renaming.
  • Rename photos using EXIF meta data (i.e. "Date Picture Taken", "Resolution" and other information embedded in all JPG photo files) Rename your holiday pictures from a meaningless dsc1790.jpg to NewYork1.jpg in a flash.
  • Rename MP3 files using ID3 tags (a.k.a. MP3 ID3 tag renaming).
  • Change files' creation and modification time stamps.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
