This tutorial explains how to automatically swap names between two files or folders.
Changing the names of two files or folders is not a difficult task. However, when you have to do this task in a large number, then it could be a frustrating process. Also, if files/folders are in the same directory, then we first need to rename the first file with some other name, rename the second file with the name of first file, and then rename the first file again with the name of the second file. So, to save your time and to automatically and quickly swap names of two different files and folders, here is a free software, known as “Name Swapper“.
Name Swapper is a very simple software that has come with a basic but very important and unique feature. In the blink of an eye, names of selected files will be swapped. Just a single click of the mouse is all required.
You need to take care that you have added either 2 files, or 2 folders. Name swapping can’t be done if you have added a file and a folder.
