Is there a way to change the file extensions of items in a folder all at once? I want to do this so i dont have to rename each one individually. Thanks.

Sorry excuse me if you read that. There is a way!, go to your start menu, run, "cmd"

Then go to the folder you have all the files in, type ren *.(file type) *.(what you want)
Example:

ren *.txt *.doc

You could take this a step further and rename only things that meet your requirements such as things start with t and end with .txt would be "ren t*.txt t*.doc". Theres a lot of things you could do with it. =)

If you don't know dos then.. to get around type "cd\\" to go to the root directory, should be the c drive, then "cd (folder)" to go to that folder and keep typing cd to go to the next folder etc. To change drive's just type "d:" or whatever then a ":".
