Windows 7: How to Autofill Filenames?

How to Autofill Filenames?

I'm not sure how to word this question. I remember figuring out in Windows XP how to autofill filenames in Windows Explorer, but I can't remember how to do it anymore. Does anyone know what I mean and how to do it?

So for instance, say I have 100 files that I want to name as XXXX01, XXXX02, XXXX03, etc. The 100 files are in the correct order already, but they do not have the correct names. How would I autofill these to say XXXX01, XXXX02, XXXX03, etc.?

Wait, nevermind, I figured it out. I just highlighted all of them and typed in XXXX(1)X, and they all changed to XXXX(1)X, XXXX(2)X, XXXX(3)X, etc.
