In this new article I am going to teach you one of the things that our Linux operating system does not allow us to do natively, which is the rename files en masse; in Windows we can do it in a very simple way by selecting the files to be renamed and clicking on the right mouse button.

First of all will be to install this application, which as is included as standard in the packages of Ubuntu, It will be as easy as open a new terminal and click the following line:
- sudo apt-get install gprename

To know how to use this sensational program for our Linux operating system, it will be as easy as watching the video-tutorial of the header and check out how simple the process of how to rename files en masse in Linux can become.
