Batch change/rename file extensions in windows

By on January 10, 2012

Today I need to rename a batch of file about >100 file from .jpg to .png for the testing of application purposes. Google around and found this free solution which make my life easy.

.

Select the folder where the file where the extension to be change and press Shirt and Right-click on the folder, and than select Open Command Window Here

You will now see a Command Window with the current folderdirectory open. Now type the following command line,

ren *.(current extension name) *.(extension you want)

.

Since I want to change the extension from .jpg to .jpg, in my case the command line would be,

ren *.jpg *.jpg

.

Now all the files inside the folder will change to the extension you want. It’s that simple.
