How do i make windows rename the files i download automatically?

Hello all,

I need some help with figuring out how to make windows 7 rename the files i download in a series.

I can't tell much about the work am going to use this auto rename for much because it's confidential. But i'll give you all who are willing to help and idea on what i do and how i want it to be done.

Basically i download "things" from a certain site for a certain use and i want to rename the downloads as something else.

Basically, I would like my downloads to be renamed in the series of 1, 2, 3 etc automatically once i feed 1 manually for the first file i download. Thanks.

OSMo, welcome to the windows 7 forum.

I do not believe that it is possible using http downloads.
If you wish to do the renaming, then about the only way I can think of would be to use a professional version of an FTP program where this would be possible. Otherwise, you would have to do it via a batch program which you would run after your downloads are finished.
