How to Rename Files in the Finder

The macOS Finder has a quite limited but very useful means to rename files. I use this feature just about every day multiple times for various things.

  1. Select the items to be renamed
  2. Right click (or control click); choose Rename N Items...
  3. Using Replace Text to replace text with other text or Add Text or Format.
  4. Click Rename.

Job done. The negatives include no ability to use regex; the feature is very useful but also has no depth or elegance for more complex actions.
