Help: Batch Rename to "Date Taken"

So I have looked through the forums and can't find an answer to the issue.

 

I am attempting to organize and rename a lot of photos. I would like to rename them to the "Date Taken".

An example would be image name "DSCN0993.JPG", Date Created "October ‎21, ‎2021", Date Modified "March ‎9, ‎2013". But if I look in the details tab, I find Date Taken "3/9/2013".

 

In Bridge, the only options are to rename "Date Created" and "Date Modified". Does anyone know how to rename it with the date taken for my situation? Example attached.

 

Thanks for the help!

EDIT: Oh what a mess...

 

I have highlighted in green the capture date/time.

 

Red is modified/edited in Photoshop.

 

Long story short, the Bridge Date Created is/should be the capture/taken date and time! Not to be confused with Date File Created – which isn't capture. Date Created (capture) is the metadata field used in Batch Rename.

The General tab of Windows shows file creation and modification, in this case when it was created in Photoshop and saved/edited. This info is not camera related.

 

The Details tab of Windows shows the camera/capture date, which in this case is different to the file dates (as this is a derivative file, not the original).

 

The upper left is ExifTool, which is correct and is being used as a third-party to confirm the results of Windows and Bridge.
