    how to create multiple folders under a chosen directory?


    I wish to create these folders with names:

    AA
    BB
    CC
    DD

    and I wish to do so by right-clicking on any opened directory, context menu and create multiple folders of the above name under that specific directory. how can this be done?

    edit: if above isn't doable within windows, are there any 3rd party software capable of doing this? or better yet, I was thinking of having the 4 empty folders in another location as a "preset" so to speak, then perhaps I can right click to execute a batch file to copy and paste those 4 folders under the directory I needed. can that be done?

    add "Copy To" to your context menu.

    I always do.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}]

    You could
    - have a batch file or PS script to do the folder creation,
    - put a shortcut to the script in your SendTo folder.
    Then you can trigger the procedure by right-clicking, SendTo, {your shortcut} which will pass the currently-selected folder to the script to act as the baseline folder for the new folders to be created within.

    All the best,
