I have a folder full of jpg files. About 200. Of these, at least 80 have the .jpg.!temp extension while the other 120 files have .jpg. How can I rename the 80 files from .jpg.!temp to .jpg without affecting the other 120 files which are normal?

The Windows file extension is the text following the FINAL dot in the entire name plus extension and that dot is not part of either the name or the extension. So what you need to do is simply delete the extensions "!temp" after which Advanced Renamer will identify "jpg" as the new extension.

So...
Replace: !temp
with: nothing
Apply to Extension

Thanks, I did that but the nothing happened...

RENAME FILES >

REPLACE >

TEXT TO BE REPLACED: .!temp
REPLACED WITH:

APPLY TO: Extension

RESULT: NOTHING!

Normally the files that show they are going to be changed show in bold. In this case no files were show in bold, which means nothing would change. I did start the batch process regardless, however that didn't change anything.

I told you that the dot is NOT part of the extension!

Read more carefully - delete the extensions "!temp"

Replace: !temp (NO dot!)
with: nothing (ie leave blank)
Apply to Extension

The filenames that will be changed will be flagged in colour as an Error: "Extension changed". This is just a warning - run the batch anyway and confirm the changes.
