Ron's Renamer - Powerful Batch File Renamer

Simple, neat, yet powerful, safe and fast. The best file renamer for multiple files and folders (MP3, EXIF files).

Ron's Renamer is a tool for renaming many files in one go, using rules like search and replace. Batches of files can be 10's to 1000's, and span multiple directories, with an unlimited number of rules that can be combined to achieve almost any result.

Ron's Renamer has been designed from concept to execution to be simple and fast to use, without compromising on power; in short to make a difficult job as easy as possible.

Ideal for renaming collections of photographs or music, or even a general tidy up of your documents!


Any number of rules can be combined in any order to satisfy almost all renaming needs. Complex rule sets can be saved to give instant access to frequently used renaming tasks.


With two or three clicks files can be renamed: drag a folder onto the main window, choose files or folders, add some rules and click rename. Job done!


With instant visual feedback of what will be renamed, and full rollback after files have been renamed it could not be safer to use.


Tested with tens of thousands of files, and designed for easy operation the job will be done in no time.
