How To: File/Folder name in Bangla

Yes you can name files in Bangla on your Windows. Avro, the highly popular software already clocking 100,000 downloads, makes it easier for you. This has been made possible by the following-

  1. Windows 2000 and later versions provide support for Unicode.
  2. It is possible to write English and Bangla using a single font, thanks to Unicode based Open Type Font (OTF).

Firstly you have to change the font of file/folder name. Follow these instructions:

Windows 2000

  1. Go to Control Panel and open Display Properties.
  2. Go to Appearance Tab. Select Icon under Item list.
  3. Select any Unicode Bangla font under Font list. You may increase the font size for ease of viewing.

(Note: Of course, select a font that allows typing in both English and Bangla.)

Windows XP

  1. Go to Control Panel and open Display Properties.
  2. Go to Appearance Tab.Click on Advanced.
  3. A new window will open. Here select Icon under Item list.
  4. Select any Unicode Bangla font under Font list. You may increase the font size for ease of viewing.

(Note: Of course, select a font that allows typing in both English and Bangla. If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 you will get a great font called Vrinda, you can use that.)

Now you can rename any file in Bangla using Avro.

NOTE:

Your computer needs to be configured for Bangla. To know how to configure your Windows for Bangla refer to this article.

Caution: Don’t go overboard and rename every file you have on your computer. Don’t rename system files. Some programs which don’t have support for Unicode in file paths will not be able to execute files named in Bangla. For example, Winamp cannot play music files named in Bangla.
