I tried it in several ways, but cannot find a solution:

I am rearranging folder names of music albums

Possible structures:
Depeche Mode - The Singles 86-98 (1998)
Erasure - The Neon 2020 deluxe bonus tracks
Asssemblage 23 - Mourn 2020 Deluxe
etc.

All should be changend in

Artist ReleaseYear AlbumTitle Edition

Depeche Mode 1998 The Singles 86-98
Erasure 2020 The Neon del...
Assemblage 23 2020 Mourn Deluxe

I do not exacly know the position of the year, it is not erverytime the same.
Is there a solution?

Can someone describe it step by step maybe with screenshots of the dialog in the app?
THANX very much

Reply to #1: Would be good if the renamer had this facility - alternatively -
You can update the year of multiple files by using the windows "Properties" function.
Select the files and right click and select "Properties". Select Details and edit required details and select "Apply" after each change.

The following will work with all your examples.

Replace method...
Replace: (.*) -(.*) \(?(\d{4})\)?
With \1 \3\2
Use regular expressions

Explanation...
"(.*)" : matches any number of characters and captures as \1
" -" : matches space + hyphen without capturing
"(.*) : captures characters as \2
" \(?" : matches space plus optional "("
"(d{4})" : matches 4-digit number and captures as \3
"\)?" : matches optional ")"
