Renumbering files to make them in order

August 28, 2012 at 14:55:07
Specs: Windows 7
I have files from abc-1.txt to abc-128.txt.
1. How do I rename them to abc-001.txt to abc-128.txt?
2. How can I concatenate them in number order when I have them named as above?
3. For a different task, would it be possible without any application program to concatenate content of files in newest date to oldest date order with ms-dos commands?

Appreciate any help.

Highlight all the files you want to rename (highlight the first one and then use the shift key to move the highlight down or use CTRL + left click on each one). When all the files are highlighted move the mouse pointer over the first one then right click and on the menu that appears select Rename. Rename the first on for example Test an all the following files will be renamed Test(1), Test(2), Test(3) etc. automatically.
