Hi Doc, thanks for posting the kink to this article.  Prior to this I had no idea this tool even existed.

Anyway, I installed the tool and took a quick look at it, and yeah, I shall get quite a bit of use from its various capabilities.... bulk renaming being just one of them.

Glad you found it useful, Cap'n...and some "Happy birthday!" karma for you, my old-er friend. 😉

It's Mark's birthday. At his age, that's more like Halloween, so no doubt he was in his Freudian slip. 😉

I didn't notice the typo when I upped my post, but that kind of thing is happening a bit lately.  I'm using a newish keyboard that sometimes spits out a typo here and there...  I think it's the keys being a bit closer than my previous keyboard, and sometimes I'll accidentally press a key beside the one I intended to press.

Not to worry, I'll get the gist of it as I practice/use it over time.

Uninstaller crashes explorer, so I had to download iObit Uninstaller to get rid of it. There might be a conflict between Fences/Powertoys, but that's just me guessing.
