Globally Unique Identifiers are useful in identifying various entities in computers, and the 128-bit numbers help in ensuring that the identified entities are not duplicated. A simple but effective application that you can use to produce your own unique identifiers is GUID Generator.

Using GUID Generator

The program's files came in a ZIP archive. We extracted them and launched the executable file directly from the folder. The application was available as Windows GUI and console applications, both of which were portable executables.

The GUI displayed a small window that let us choose a few options depending on the way we wanted to generate the unique identifiers. We selected the preferred GUID format from 19 different choices in a drop-down list. We also specified the number of GUIDS that we wanted the application to generate. Two check boxes next to those options allowed us to choose whether to generate GUIDs in lowercase and/or swap bytes.

Other check boxes let us:

  • Choose whether to add the identifiers to prefix or suffix part of file names
  • Copy first, last or all GUIDs after generation
  • Automatically generate GUIDs at program startup

Once we had specified the required options, we simply clicked the "Generate GUIDs" button on the upper left part of the application window. GUID Generator gave us the opportunity to save either selected or all GUIDs as text files. We could also delete selected GUIDs or clear the entire list. The status bar at the bottom of the window showed us the most recent action.

The Console version of the application provided the same functionality as the Windows GUI one, but we could use it in batch files.

Conclusion

If you would like to add Globally Unique Identifiers to your files, then GUID Generator will help you generate as many identifiers as you want. The application generates the number of specified identifiers as soon as you click the "Generate GUIDs" button. You can copy or save the generated GUIDs for later use.
