Does anyone know how to quickly mass-remove track numbers from file names using this program? I know it can be done, but I don't know anything about writing scripts.

Well I had it completely rename all my music file titles, and it took around 5 seconds to do over 7000 songs.

Yes, but how do I configure it to just remove the track numbers?

You do a rename and <a> - <title> and it will remove the track numbers. Even just removing the number is RENAMING the file.

At the menu at the top, pick Convert, then Tag - Filename.
A window will pop up, and in it will be a string that you can edit.
%artist% - %album% - $num(%track%,2) - %title%
So say you only want... Artist - Song (as an example)
You'd have the string as... %artist% - %title% then push OK.
I don't know exactly what you want for format, but you'll get the idea with that main string, just change it around to how you want the file named.
Oh, I should mention but you might know, all your files need to be loaded in to mp3tag and then all selected in it for it to work. Edit/Select All

I've always used this program to do the mp3 tags properly, but never fiddled with any options/settings.
Decided to rename all the actual file titles, and wow, was it ever fast. Did over 7000 songs in like 5 seconds.

Yeah!, this is the best I've found been using it since version 1.5. You can batch, change case mode on the fly, etc.,etc..
I do a lot of various artist folders, and wording with Mp3tag actually makes working with large file folders a breeze.

Actually it does!! I've been using this program for quite some time, and never really checked out the options. Just did, and it WILL rename files however you choose, is customizable.
I wish I had of known that all along, lol.

Can it rename mp3 files according to whichever way you like based on tag information?

Otherwise I use Tag&Rename trial. The best paid tagging app so far.

Yeah it can take any of the tag data and use it to rename the files (and build a folder structure). It has never failed me. Works great for cutting out all the crap you get like multiple album covers which can confuse some media players.
