Over the years there have been several times I have needed to batch rename groups of files. Whether this is 10 files or 100, the process can be time consuming and tedious. Fortunately, Windows provides a way to quickly rename a group of files quickly, as long as you are OK with the file names following the same naming structure and to be in sequential order.
To rename your files quickly follow these steps:

Figure 2. All files of Explorer Window renamed with same naming structure.
Now you can quickly edit a large group of images to have the same common naming structure, without downloading any third-party software.
