Convert Windows filename to all lowercase?


Recommended Posts

In Windows Explorer, manually place mouse over file name, click once to select the name. You could use other techniques, manual or macro-driven to do the selection.


Macro can then do this:

Type <ALTD>f<ALTU>m which highlights the name to be changed.

Clipboard Copy the highlighted name.

Set String T1 from clipboard.

Variable Modify String: Lowercase %T1%

Text Type T1 which overtypes the highlighted name.

Text Type <ENTER>

<F2> does the same thing as <ALTD>f<ALTU>m


...and is less likely to misfire.


Do you also want to lowercase the file extension? Because if you do, you may need to do something like this...


Text Type <F2> ' select the name

TextType <SHIFT><END> ' extend selection to include the extension

Clipboard Copy ' the selected name

Set String %T1% from clipboard

Variable Modify String: Lowercase %T1%

Text Type %T1% ' type over the selected name

Text Type <ENTER>


If you want the macro to be ready to do the same thing to the next file, add this line:


Text Type <DOWN>
