I select approx. 18000 files in Windows Explorer to rename with BRU,
I get an error displaying "too many files selected".

What is the maximum of files to select?

When using the Windows File Explorer extension Bulk Rename Here, the limit is the total sum of characters contained in the path multiplied by the number of files, so there is no specific limit for the number of files, it depends on path length too.
