    Hi all, I am trying to find a powershell script that would help me with renaming in the following scenario:
    I have folders with a single video file "Moviename.avi" and 2 identical Image files "folder.jpg + Moviename.jpg" also enclosed.
    What I would like to do is rename the "Moviename.avi" file and the Image File "Moviename.jpg" with its current "Folder Name".

    Example Before:
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator (1984ST)\Terminator (1984).avi
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator (1984ST)\Terminator (1984).jpg
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator\Folder.jpg

    Example After:
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator (1984ST)\Terminator (1984ST).avi
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator (1984ST)\Terminator (1984ST).jpg
    C:\Temp\Videos\Terminator\Folder.jpg

    Once again many thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
    As I am a noobie to powershell, I do have other questions to ask later if this can be solved.

    This is similar to what I showed you before. Did you try to work this out on your own? That's the only way you will learn PowerShell.

    Sorry Jeff but I tend to learn things quicker by going back through the correct answer especially when it comes to computer programming etc.
    Best regards
