If you want to rename multiple files in the same directory:

1. Using the Windows Explorer, select all the files you want to rename

2. Press F2 or right click and select Rename

3. Enter the prefix for the name you want (e.g. Newname)

4. This will automatically rename the rest of the files Newname (1).jpg, Newname (2).jpg etc.

5. Make sure you include the extension if you have the Explorer configured to show them.
