How difficult is it to change a file name or extension on a Mac? Select the file in the Finder. Press the Enter key (or click), and type in the changes. Until Siri comes to the Mac, that’s the time honored way and it’s about as easy as it can get.
What if you have a few dozen files which need to be changed? Or, hundreds of files? Suddenly, that simple, straightforward manual method of changing a file’s name and extension has become hours of tedium.
Not with ManageNameExt, a free Mac app that lets you add, remove, or change file name extensions.
There’s not much to it and the basic options are almost self explanatory. Grab a folder of files which need to have file names changed. Open ManageNameExt and select the appropriate options.
For example, the name can be edited by adding or changing prefix or appending the suffix. Case can be modified, too. Unlike most name changer apps, ManageNameExt also gives you an option to modify the file’s modification date.
Once the settings are in place, simply click the Process button and the files get the assigned changes. Also free and even simpler to use is NameChanger which has more file naming options.
