Batch Rename Files on the Mac
Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how to batch-change file names on the Mac. Let's say that we have a group of files and we want to add our name to the front of all of them.
We select all of the files to rename
Then, we right-click the highlighted list
We click "Rename Items..."
There are 27 items in this video.
We add our name in the front of all of these items by typing it into the text box
To the left of the text box, we click the drop-down menu to reveal a few options
The options are "Replace Text", "Add Text", and "Format".
For this tutorial, let's choose "Add Text"
We click the drop-down menu on the right side of the text box
We click whether the added text should go before or after the file name
Let's keep the default setting of "before name" by clicking away from the drop-down menu.
We click "Rename" on the bottom-right of this window
Now, the typed name has been added to the beginning of all of the selected items.
That was how to batch-rename files using Finder on the Mac OS X. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the space below. Thank you for watching VisiHow!
