The "Convert Files From" setting allows you to configure the location of the files to convert. Any files in this folder that are supported will be converted to the "Convert To Format". You can type in the location, or click "Change Folder" to browse to the location.

 

The "Save To" folder setting allows you to configure the location of the converted files. It must be a different location from the "Convert Files From" folder. You can type in the location, or click "Change Folder" to browse to the location.

 

The "Convert" button will start the conversion process.  Depending on the number of files in the "Convert Files From" folder and the "Convert To Format" selected, it can take a long time to convert all files.  The "Cancel" button remains active during the conversion process, and allows you to cancel the batch convert.
