In the good 'ol days of Dos there was a remarkable Dos command called 'rename', which would accept various wild cards and would work very well indeed. Then Windows came along, and there is no similar program under Windows. Although the 'rename' command is still present under a Dos box (run command), it not longer accepts wild cards in the same way. Actually it can make a right mess, as for example RENAME *.pdf Jobs_*.pdf instead of starting each file name with the new bit 'Jobs_' it now overwrites the first 5 characters of each name. Can anyone suggest a neat utility to do this important wild-card rename task under Windows XP ?
