    It was just strange that you were also thinking of a way to achieve this task.
    Thank you, Paul. I find that to be a compliment.

    Slightly improved code . . .

    This batch script creates a folder for each filename in the directory that the batch script resides in and then populates [ moves ] them with the files accordingly. The folders names will be a mirror image of the filenames themselves, excluding the suffix.

    WARNING: Setup a test directory directory that includes a selection of filenames FIRST and then run the batch script to ensure that the results are correct and as expected.

    Code:
    @echo off
    title Files To Folders - Written by Paul Black.
    mode con: cols=60 lines=7 & color 17
    set count=-1
    echo. & echo  Processing . . .
    for %%j in (*) do set /A Count +=1
    for %%i in (*) do (
      if not "%%~ni" == "Files_To_Folders" (
        md "%%~ni" && move "%%~i" "%%~ni" >nul
      )
    )
    echo. & echo  Created and populated %Count% folders successfully!
    echo. & echo ^>Press ANY key to EXIT . . . & pause >nul

    Good morning Paul. It's 7:30 AM and having my morning coffee. I ran a side by side comparison of the two codes and the only change I see is the blue CMD. Slightly Improved

    And what dose this change of code do exactly? See the image.

    So the; mode con: cols=60 lines=7 & color 17 made the CMD blue? I find this interesting. Is 62 too late to start learning code?

    You are NEVER too late to learn!

    Type this in a cmd prompt and press <ENTER> . . .

    Code:
    color /?
    I hope this helps!

    I have several thousand files that I want put into individual folders of the same name. Does anyone know of a batch method for this?
    Have you had a chance to look at and test the code I wrote yet?

    Can you write the .bat to sort by file extension? I noted that the two .mp3 file had separate folders. As if it were file extension they would be in the same folder.

    Hello @Lance1,
    The code wouldn't know what to call the folder!
    I had faith that you had the skills and you did it! Some did not get sorted as they not in the script. Well done and Thank You Paul. Before and After Pics.
