Batch rename files in Windows from Command Line

This is an easy way to add a prefix to any set of files in a Windows folder, from a command prompt type this

[code]for %a in (*.*) do ren "%a" "prefix – %a"[/code]


Tried in Windows 10. Thanks to ofer.sheffer in this Stackoverflow post where there is also an example on how to do this in PowerShell.
