renaming files in one go

Postby HaWe » 01 May 2012, 09:55

hello,
I have a folder with > 500 photos of my daughter, named after the pattern
Hannah 2006-09 kos1.jpg
Hannah 2006-09 mls.jpg
Hannah 2005 01s.jpg
Hannah 2011-07 a2.jpg

I would now like to delete out all over the first 7 letters of the name automatically ("Hannah ") and rename all 500 in one go.
does anyone know how to do it via a batch file or a script or a tool ?
(for Windows XP 32)

A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself.

At least in Win7 you can actually just select everything, press F2 and input a name and it will name every file that and append "(x)" where x is a counter. It doesn't offer a lot of flexibility, but it works.
