adding a letter to multiple file names at the same time

by r8gordini / March 8, 2009 5:45 PM PDT

Is there a way to add a letter or number to multiple file names at the same time ?
I now I can rename each file individually but that is time consuming. I would like to do it with one command if possible, to all selected files.
for example I have files in a folder and I would like to add the letter "A" at the begining of each file name.

to this

Thanks in advance
