[...] tags directly to filenames  [...] ok, this can also be done in a one-click fashion using XYplorer's scripting. Like you could set up 20 Catalog items which on a click do whatever you want to the current file name. All imaginable logic and rename artistry is supported.  [...]  Very soon you will also get customizable toolbar buttons  [...]

Neat! Though by the time I read this I had already done a small standalone AHK tag toolbar that works ok for my purposes. It gets the selected files path from the active explorer/xyplorer/etc window through ctrl+c and then operates on the filenames. (If there's great demand for it -- unlikely! -- then I'll clean up the code later and post it. Drawback: I've found no easy way to re-select multiple files in Explorer programmatically from an AHK script after renaming.) Anyway, I will keep checking XYplorer's development on this front. Customizable toolbar buttons that allow the user to run almost anything is great for many other uses also I suspect. I still like the XY's thumbnail mode a lot so I might use it for that alone with my script - I'll testdrive some more and we'll see. Thanks for all the helpful feedback!
Id love to try out your AHK script if you post it I can just copy and past it.

Thanks for the reply and links to read. Yeah I suppose you can expect too much from a great program. I just thought someone might have found a way to work with a plugin.  I suppose though it would be better to find a good renaming tool and just use far to start it up.

say IF I wanted to rename a bunch of pictures in a folder that my digital camera has named 0001.jpg etc to something more memorable like Frenchholiday.jpg   Is there a way to to that in farr, with or without plugin?

why all the files in the zipped folder?
apart from the nircmd.exe  there were 4 alias files
do I need all these?
also my antimalware program didnt like nircmdc.exe and removed it but it thought nircmd.exe was fine

re Directory maker, my antivirus (outpost) tells me that Directory maker.exe contains a trojan called
"DR binder.ALI"   I suppose this is a false positive?
