Mass tagging in JOSM?

I logged in to my openstreetmap account and opened the iD editor.
What I wanted to do is to select a couple of buildings (say 10 of them) and assign to all of them the following tag: building=residential.
However it seems that iD editor is not capable of doing this.

Can this be done in JOSM editor? To assign a certain tag to all selected closed ways or maybe all selected nodes?

Thank you for the reply.
(I can not check this by myself, as I have issues with installing Java on my PC).

Sure it can. It's a basic operation in JOSM.

Yes, of course. You can use different selection methods to select needed objects and set/edit value of a tag or even rename the tag left values untouched.

You can do it in Potlatch 2, too, if you can't get Java to work on your system.

I didn't know that! Thank you Richard!

Just one off-topic question please: Does Potlatch 2 has an option of choosing a different satellite imagery source?
JOSM had this, and it was very useful sometimes when Bing's quality was quite poor in specific areas.
