# Ubuntu – How to tab to next file when renaming

nautilusrename

If I am renaming a bunch of files in Nautilus quickly, when I hit Enter the file jumps to its proper place alphabetically. But that means I have to go back and find the next file I wanted to rename.

Is there any way to easily tab to the next file when renaming, like in Windows? I tried various keys but nothing works.

Note: I am not looking for a batch renamer like the rename command, I am renaming a handful of files with no pattern to them.
