Is there a way in Windows to change all filename to lowercase?

Thanks

May I ask why you want to do this? whenever you type an 'A' vs. an 'a' it's actually a very different value. The OS has to render those filesnames based on thoese values. I am wondering if you are wanting to do this for a program that you are writing or for personal visual effect?

No, it is just a mistake I need to correct. All images in my website (750 pics) have an uppercase string (the N - e.g. No1_pic.jpg).

I know I could write a PHP to change filename, but I have no time (deadline soon). So, I was just wondering if I could something using Windows command. If not, I will have to use the batch process of Fireworks to batch and copy.

There is one way you could try. Highlight ALL files in the folder and press F2 to rename them. Windows will use the same name you choose for all the files, adding numbers afterwards.
