Microsoft Picture manager a way to move images to specific folder

I have 100's of images in each folder and i need to separate them while i view

So when i view can we have a shortcut key like Ctrl + delete moves the viewing image into a folder called "Posters" within the viewed folder?

Can this be done with some script or change in registry?

I want to be sure I understand this. I think you're saying that you're viewing images in a folder, let's say it's named ImageFolder ("the viewed folder"). The folder has hundreds of images, but you're viewing just one of them ("the viewing image"). While viewing that one image, you want to hit a hotkey (such as "Ctrl + delete") to move that one image into a folder called Posters that is a subfolder of ImageFolder ("within the viewed folder"). Is that right? If not, please clarify. Regards, Joe

Yes perfect

Than i move to 2nd and 3rd and if i want the 4th also to move to the "Posters" folder again i will use the hot key and the 2nd image moves to "Posters" folder

This Hot key is used while viewing the image with "Microsoft Picture manager"

You don't need a hotkey, script, or registry change, imo. Here's my recommendation for how to do this easily in Picture Manager. First, click the Shortcuts icon (or View>Shortcuts). So when viewing a particular image, you should see something like this:

Picture Manager shortcuts
Now simply hold down the Shift key and drag-and-drop the image onto the Posters folder. That's it! This will (1) move the image from the ImageFolder into the Posters folder and (2) automatically bring up the next image in the ImageFolder into the viewing pane.

Note: it's important to hold down the Shift key while you're doing the drag-and-drop — that's what makes it do a Move. If you don't hold down the Shift key while doing the drag-and-drop, it will perform a Copy, not a Move, which means it will leave the original image in the ImageFolder and will not bring up the next image from the ImageFolder into the viewing pane.

Btw, if you ever upgrade to Office 2013 and discover that Picture Manager is no longer included, this EE article explains how to get it back (free!):
