How to append the same thing to multiple folders names RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone.  I regularly have to go through and manually click a lot of folders to add a -done to the end of their names.  Is there a clever way I can highlight a bunch of folders in Windows 7 and only type -done once and it'll add that to the end of each folders name?

    An easy alternative would consist of moving these folders into a "Done" subfolder.
