I have about 800 files in multiple folders, under a single parent, that I need to rename. It's a pretty simple rename where all the current files have a "_gr" in their file names, and I need to rename that part of their file names to, "_gt".

How can I do this from the command line?  Either DOS batch or Powershell is acceptable.

Thank you.
