Renaming duplicate files

Post by dcwul62 »

Some files are duplicate on purpose. Stored in different folders. Being duplicates of those specific files is okay.
Sometimes there is a slight difference in file names: one is better than the other.
With Shift-F6 I may copy the 'correct' file name to clipboard.
So far, so good.

Now I would like to paste it onto the 'other' file, i.e. the one that requires the name to be corrected.

Am not sure whether there is a paste option(?)
I mean, within Duplicate Cleaner.

Any suggestions?

p.s. Maybe there simply isn't as probably may be beyond the scope of Duplicate Cleaner.

To rename a file from a copied file name you can:
Click on file
F2 (to rename)
Ctrl-A (select old name)
Crtl-V Paste copied name.
