That worked before.. But a lot people accidentally closed the windows when they did not want to close it so it was blocked.
You can close it with Alt+F4. Main app is not closing if this is pressed in that window.

Thanks for the answer and implementig my request.
I've got additional idea to add into Multi-Rename tool:

Right now we have 4 fields in option "Search & replace" to replace 4 words (letters) in the filename in the same time. Could you maybe change this option to one field where we can describe even 20 words (letters) separate by "|" or ";" ?

I found this idea when I had to rename a lot of files with Polish letters to filenames without them.
In PL we have 9 special letters, I had to repeat this activity 5 times, 9 for lowercase and 9 for uppercase letters.

I was looking in online documentation about possibility to replace more but I didn't find.

If you prefer "ESC" and aren't adverse to some scripting, here's an AHK script that will do so. Also Ctrl+ESC as an option to close all Multi-Rename windows.

Code: [Select]
#SingleInstance, Force
#Warn
#NoEnv
SetTitleMatchMode, Regex

#ifWinActive ^Multi-Rename$ ahk_class ^ATL:00007FF812A545D0$
ESC::WinClose, % "ahk_id " . WinActive("A")
#ifWinActive

#if WinActive("^Multi-Rename$ ahk_class ^ATL:00007FF812A545D0$") || WinActive("^Multi Commander ahk_class ^Afx:00007FF715CB0000:0$")

^ESC:: ; Ctrl+ESC :: Close all instances of Multi-Rename
; If Multi-Rename, or Multi-Commander is the active Window.
while( gwID:=WinExist("^Multi-Rename$ ahk_class ^ATL:00007FF812A545D0$") )
WinClose, % "ahk_id " . gwID
return
#if

Please note, AHK has undergone some tumultuous times. I would recommend AHKScript.org for the most recent downloads, instead of the deprecated autohotkey.com which only offers an ahk version from 2007.
