Windows 7: Manually sort the order of photos in a folder?

Manually sort the order of photos in a folder?

Hi,

I want to manually sort the order of photos in a folder, then rename them all in one go. After searching the internet, it seems possible where I am supposed to simply drag the thumbnail of each photo to the desired place in the folder but I cannot do this, the thumbnail just stays put.

How can I do this? I have Paint Shop Pro 6 where that allows me to sort the order but not to rename them all in one go.

If you are looking for a good, free batch converter for your photos, try Irfanview. It's one of the best (IMHO)
Here's the link:
