Why can't I batch rename files?

I have used Lightroom off and on for 20 years. I have had to switch from Mac to Windows PC (very much against my will). Well, over here I can't figure out how to rename files. Can't find it anywhere. I want to be able to import photos and have them named something unique like "picnic" and auto-naming them picnic1, picnic2, etc. I am getting conflicting info; nothing is working. I can do this on a Mac in my sleep, but Windows just makes no sense to me. What do I have to do in LIGHTROOM -- not CC -- to import files after assigning unique names to a batch? Please dumb it down as much as possible. Thanks so much.

Renaming in Lightroom Classic works the same on both WIndows and MacOS, so I'm not sure why you are having a problem. Can you verify the version that you are using please.....Help>System Info.
