remove a space before the file extension

With NameWiz, you can rename files en-masse in either a single folder or all sub folders. Change the file extension, make all names lower/upper case, replace, remove, insert, delete, move or swap characters, add prefixes and suffixes, or replace the names altogether with sequential names of your choosing.

Hello,

You need to select ""Include Extension" at the bottom and it will work.

Hello,
thank you for your answer. I had tested both with and without file extension and probably got the version "without" when screenshotting.
Unfortunately, it also does not work with "including file extension.

right above the two lines where you have from: .mp3 to: .mp3

You have it selected, that means NW will try to change any characters for .mp3 like replacing the space for .mp3 then replace the . for .mp3 then replace the m for .mp3 etc.
