Ohk. It would do. Though I am likely to forget that it is where I have
to look to found Version No., But I think I would remember that I had
asked and you had guided me, so I would search in google-groups and this
answer would pop up.

You can please give it a thought to provide, Version No., About details,
and the link to googlegroups somewhere in the program or in the
installation folder or start menu somewhere.

New query:

Any plans to provide option for changing filename in bulk for the
