Linux – Rename Multiple Files

One cannot deny that Windows made file management user friendly. It’s 2017 and still some important usability features are missing from Linux distros. Last, I had to rename multiple files in order to organize my web image assets neatly, but (being a previous Windows user) I kept bashing F2 in order te perform a bulk rename, but Nemo didn’t do a thing.

And so I opended a terminal and had to execute this command in order to create backup files (be sure to have ‘mmv’ installed):

mmv ‘*’ ‘#1.bak’

Simple comme bonjour!
