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
