Are you wondering how to create multiple folders in Windows 10 or even in Windows 7? That can be very useful if you are a analyst, for instance. Say that you need to make a folder for each month of the year on your Windows PC. Sure, you can manually create a folder for each month, but that might take some time. Fortunately, there is a way to automate this. Let’s see how to create multiple folders at once, using a simple Command Prompt.
This is for devices running Windows 10
Using the Command Prompt
First, click the Start button from the Taskbar and type “cmd” (without quotes) in the Cortana Search bar (next to the Start button). Next, choose Command Prompt from the search results. Refer to below image:
Next, you can change directories in Command Prompt using the “cd” command (without quotes) and switch to the directory where you want to make your folders. See below image:
Now. using the “md” command (without quotes) you can make a new directory for your folders. You want to create twelve folders, one for each month in a year with the following command:
md Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
See following image:
If you want multiple words for a folder, just enclose the words in quotes, for example:
md “2021 Jan“ “2021 Feb” and so on.
Next, you can close the Command Prompt and open the destination in Windows Explorer to check the newly made folders. Refer to below image for some of the created folders: (Due to Explorer sorting, we are only showing some consecutive ones.)
There are other ways to accomplish creating multiple folders at once, but this method is the easiest.
