Renaming Files


Recommended Posts

I've attached "Filename Replacement".

You run it while in Explorer, from there it gets the folder

you want to replace filename in.

It then has multiple choice of replacement mode.


I use it all the time for large groups of digital pics to put a

more user friendly name on them.





I posted this in the "old" newsgroup, reposting here.

Beacher -


It looks good. I like the menu that allows a person to replace all names without further prompting. Nice touch.


Here is a suggestion assuming that Alt+D at the beginning is meant for the Address field in Windows Explorer: wrap the macro in an If/End If structure which will return TRUE if the active window is Windows Explorer (even though it is scoped to a ":\" window).


This would make it more universal. It is possible to have a window title other than Windows Explorer with the ":\" sequence. Maybe even another one that would accept an Alt+D. Another option would be to scope it to the explorer.exe program rather than a window title. But even so, I would still wrap the code.

There's a problem with active window is "Windows Explorer".

In my Windows Explorer the title is the path to the current directory and not "Windows Explorer".

That's why I used the ":\" referance.


Scoping it to the explorer.exe program is a very good idea

which I have implemented.
