You can probably skip this step by using a mask like:
_____copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\
where _ is a space.

Now, if Ctrl+Batch had an operator like GenerateRandomNumber (#), one could use:
#####copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\
resulting in:

23195copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\
98733copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\
00909copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\
76213copy %4.%5 F:\LenPassive\temp\

This would save you another step.

This feature could be used "creatively" to rename a huge number of tagged files and
make a superficial snooper/hacker miserable attempting to dig your data:

REN %4.%5 ##########.#####

Of course, you would keep the original REN2RND.BAT commands someplace so you can
rename the files back by swapping the file names in the generated REN commands.
The '#' is probably not the best choice, since it is a legal file character.
