Just wondering if anyone can help me. I have to
    bulk change thousands of URL names (I'm using Frontpage) to Proper aka "title" case
, so would love to learn a cool way to do it in bulk if you have any secret or trick, thank you for your time and help if you can. PS I have Dreamweaver and willing to learn if it offers the solution. But obviously open to any bulk solution.

Check out a script repository like hotscrpts.com, there are a ton of utilities out there to rename files in bulk.

What I don't understand is your request to change file names to 'Proper aka "title" case'. Best practice is to leave all file names in lower case.

Apache/Linux style servers are very particular regarding case. For example, the following would return three different files:

Foo.Htm
fOo.hTm
foo.htm

Case is important. I'd go with bill's suggestion: maintain lowercase for URL and filenames!

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, but I have used some freeware called "ReNamer" to make mass changes in lists of file names. It has a number of options and rules.

It does a "confirm" before it renames. Search "renamer" or "snapfiles"
