    Rename all files in folder (WinXP)

    I need to move the last six characters of the filename to become the first six. I have a whole folder of files which need this operation, so I am looking for a way of not doing each one by hand. Any help with native window methods would be good, as I may have to wait for our IT support to allow me to install 3rd party software (some of which I think would do the job - any recomendations on that also welcome).
    Thanks!

    I am not sure that it is exactly what you need, but take a look at THE Rename:

    It's free and can rename multiple files according to desirable rules.

    That's the Windoze Way. <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    Another of the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> renaming utilities is A.F.5. Or you might want to peruse this Google search.
