Bulk editing of files

lets us say you have just download a new album or game
but all the files are .xxx and you need them to be
zip's, rar's, mp3's etc.....
then do the following

-create a new folder
-put all the files needing editing in the new folder
-then goto "run" in the start menu
-type in CMD and click ok

-the next thing needs to add few bits of old dos commands
-you need to navagate CMD to the folder whree the files are
-you can do this by 1st getting the total adress of the folder
-and then typing it in cmd with a "cd" in front
cd c:\xxx\yyy\ccc\

once you are in the folder where the files are there you can move on
you can check you in the right folder by typing dir to get a list of files

-now type in....
rename *.* *.zip
change the zip to what ever the extention needs to be (.rar, .mp3, etc)
all done
you should have now changed the .* to what ever you needed
to exit CMD type in "exit"
