Admit it: You sometimes become impatient. Why should you waste your time doing the same thing repeatedly? If you’ve ever had to rename multiple files or folders in your Win10 machine, you know how foolish it is to click, stop, click again, type the new name, hit Enter, and then repeat the same thing for each and every file you have in your system.

Found some duplicates? Use Name Collision Rule. It further consists of several options. You can either Increment By a Number (that numbers your filename) or Replace it (that replaces old with the new files)

You can add a suffix (text) at the end of your filename.
