Sooner or later everyone faces the incredibly boring task of having to rename a bunch of files. But before you start this laborious process take a look at this handy app that may save you loads of time and work.

Ken Rename is one of the most complete and customizable renaming tools I've seen. It's dead easy to use and can also be embedded into Windows File Explorer to use it directly from any folder's context menu.

You start by simply adding all the files you want to rename to the program's interface. Then, using the menu at the bottom of the interface, you select the renaming options you'd like to apply to your files. There are a few to choose from: replacing character strings, changing case, inserting or removing text, or replacing the original name with a completely new one, to name a few. The good thing about Ken Rename is that you can add several actions to a list and perform all of them together with a single mouse click.

Ken Rename can also work with hidden, read-only and system files. Plus, it features special support for MP3 and EXIF tags, which enables you to rename music files and images making use of the information stored in tags. Obviously this last option only works well when your music files are properly tagged and your images have EXIF data.

Ken Rename is a simple-to-use yet fully featured file renaming tool with which you can rename hundreds of files in just a few seconds.
