Select the file or folder in the Finder. Press the Return key. Type in the new name. Done. But what if you want to add a prefix or a suffix and you need to change the name of hundreds of folders and files?
That takes a specialized app or a Mac user who is a glutton for punishment. It gets worse if you need to create hundreds of folders, give them sequential numbers as names. Well, worse if you do it the manual way. Easy if you use Loads of Folders.
This may be the ultimate one-trick pony app. All it does is create and number folders. By the dozens, hundreds, or thousands.
Using Loads of Folders is so easy it borders on fun. Add a Prefix, start the number and give the range to another number. Add a Suffix if you prefer.
Click the Create Folders button. That’s it. Within seconds you’ll have hundreds of folders, each with the proper Prefix and Suffix, but more importantly– sequentially numbered.
Options include the ability to add or remove a leading zero, or to preview the naming scheme before creating the folders, but that’s it. Loads of Folders is try-before-you-buy, easy to setup and use, and takes mere seconds to do what could take hours for anyone who needs a few hundred sequentially numbered folder names.
If you need to rename files and folders, it’s hard to go wrong with Renamerox which also does more but costs more.
