Create new pre-defined Folders (from existing cmd file) on right click in empty folder. W2000
Posted on 2004-10-12
I am using Windows 2000. I would like to be able to streamline my project folders creation, (and force people to create folders the way I want them created!). My intention is to allow someone to create a new folder [eg 04-543]. From within explorer view of this empty folder I would like them to right click and select |[New Project Folders]| this would then create as follows
I can get the "Create New Folders" to appear as a right click option
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\DosHere value = "Create New Folders"
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\DosHere\command Value = mybatch.cmd
md "From Others"
this doesn't quite work.
A - You have to right click on the folder 04-543, and the cmd creates the folders in the same folder that 04-543 is in, and not within folder 04-543.
Any help would be appreciated
