How 2 change multiple file names?

I'm doing a standard change to over 600 jpg file names ("IMG_0nnn" to "E_nnn") and a manual one-by-one method is giving me a nervous twitch.

Is there a way of achieving a global change to file names contained within the same folder?

Many thanks in anticipation of ideas and suggestions.

Select 'em all.

Right click on one and choose rename.

Windows will add a number to the end.
