Batch Renaming Files in Mac Finder

You can rename multiple files easily in macOS High Sierra and other recent versions of macOS. The option to do so only appears when you have selected multiple files. You can choose to simply replace text in all filenames. Yo can also add text to the beginning or end of a filename. You can also set up formatted names, such as numbering groups of files.

    Brilliant!

    Did not know that and I’m a Mac veteran.

    Well done video — clear, informative, excellent narration, and covered key aspects.

    Gary, is there a way to control the leading zeros. I think I doing this correctly but I end up with 00001 etc. Otherwise this is a great tutorial.

    Steve: Sounds like you are using “counter.” Instead use the “index” option so you don’t have leading zeroes.
