The Finder has had batch renaming for awhile, you may have missed it. I didn't know about it until quite a while after they added it. It is very helpful to have it built in.I still do many things in Finder, but Pathfinder adds some nice functions like batch renaming that would be more tedious otherwise.
I've used PathFinder for years. It's had it's ups and downs, but has been good overall. I still do many things in Finder, but Pathfinder adds some nice functions like batch renaming that would be more tedious otherwise.
I've never been that keen on Finder, having been a Windows user for most of my life. I notice there are a few pimped up alternatives to Finder on the market.
What is the best Finder alternative? Are they indeed better than Finder?
Coming from Windows years ago, I disliked Finder and used PathFinder. But now, I have learned to appreciate Finder, especially after I discovered the existence of AppleScript. This helped me so solve my issues with Finder - for example, I can now open a Finder window in the precise and never changing size I prefer.
What exactly do you dislike about Finder?
That Sounds interesting. I am also looking for a real Alternative to total Commander but there is none. If y could get Finder to have a real Dual Panel Option I would Never Look back. There was a cool Alternative but it died with catalina
There is a Script for that but it su***s bad. Maybe you got a cool Script Page
A better question would be what do I like about Finder? The answer is little. Windows Explorer is far superior, in my view. I like it in Finder where you can have multiple columns to drill down through the folders. But most of Finder is not very intuitive and seems a very dated system to me. It reminds me of some aspects of Mac that they seem reluctant to improve upon. An example is the two minimise buttons on the Mac, the x and the -. I mean what is that all about?What exactly do you dislike about Finder?

The red x closes, the yellow - minimises so that it can be opened again.
Personal preferences vary a lot and are up to change... I really loved the "old" Windows Explorer until... Vista? XP? Dunno. Hot it was back then
Finder has tabs, I think since Mavericks (not sure either...)
You can edit the behaviour of the x button with the more recent versions of macOS.
But before that, x and - were the same, AFAICT.
