How can I spell check file names? My spelling isn't at all great, and I rely on MS Word, Google Chrome etc. to make sure I don't publically embarass myself with improper spelling.

How can I clean up my file and folder names? Is there a program or app I can use?

You can list the file and folder names using Directory Lister freeware available @ and then carry out a spell check on the extracted listing of file and folder names without extensions by copying it into Microsoft Word.

Yes, but how do I then automatically rename the incorrectly named file names, to correctly named ones? – wizlog Mar 28 '12 at 16:39

ispell or aspell?

something like (untested)

c:\> dir /B | ispell -l


c:\> dir /B | aspell -list

Can you please elaborate? where do I enter this, what do I do with this, what dictionary does this use...? – wizlog Mar 28 '12 at 16:39
In a command prompt, read the list of misspellings and suggestions, one of the dictionaries provided with it and/or one you supply. – RedGrittyBrick Mar 28 '12 at 16:42
