Hello. I have an important question to ask you I really need answered.

I am looking for renaming file or folder program out there that can be customized through setup and used consistently to ones desired file renaming scheme or format that automatically renames the files or folders either when saving ("Save" or "Save As") the file or folder or when selecting any unmodified file or folder and automatically changing the file name to the setup renaming scheme or format.

When I say a file or folder renaming scheme or format, I mean to say something like this example:

BEFORE: An unmodified file already existing in your Windows system or a file ready to be saved on your system: setup.exe .

AFTER: Using the renaming file or folder program either from an unmodified file already existing in your Windows system or a file ready to be saved on your system: setup - 3-15-12.exe, or setup - 3-15-12 PM.exe, or setup - 3-15-12 11-20 PM.exe, or setup - 3-15-12 23-20.exe as examples. I am using a suffix without modifying the file name per se with the date and/or date and time or date and 12-hour formats. Honestly, this scheme is what I would ultimately desire. Of course, this could be 'specifically' customized by the user.      

Do you know of any, recommend any, or even suggest any renaming file or folder program out there that supports similar functions?

This would save me much valuable time instead of manually altering the file or folder name.

FYI, I have/this applies to a Windows 7 64-bit operating system. This renaming file or folder program would be inclusive to Windows 7's Windows Explorer's 'Save' and "Save As' operations therefore most of the third party programs installed would be implicated with this renaming file or folder program.

Please reply.

Thank you!

You could try "Ken Rename" tool
http://myprogramspace.blogspot.com/2008/07/krename-multi-file-rename-tool-v0.html

It's possible to create different templates for renaming,  including date, ID tag elements and so on.

I'm not sure, if it could be integrated into the explorer, however, You could use it on regular basis after saving the files.

@ bazika & anyone:

Hello. Nice to meet you.

Thank you for your comment basika.

I am reviewing and practicing with your recommendation. It is a nice program. I see it is a free batch file renamer program. Yes, I am wondering if it can be integrated into Windows Explorer on my Windows 7 by chance if anyone else knows if it can?

...or does anyone else know of such a way of integrating this like with a script or any other program out there that can BOTH work with or part of Windows Explorer and be a standalone interface, fully featured program?

Please reply.

Thank you!

@ all:

I am going to close this thread now. I didn't get the response I was looking for this question/thread, however I am going to award bazika the points for effort and partial answer/solution to this issue. It appears no expert knows the real answer and solution to this question/thread or there is none that meets my needs. It is time for a computer programmer/developer to come up with such a program!
