Lifehacker posted about a tiny but useful feature of Windows 7 – a keyboard shortcut to create a new folder.
On Windows XP, it’s still missing. In the past I’ve always used a right click with wf. It gets the job done but it uses the mouse, which is slow. Now that Microsoft has given this a more or less official shortcut, I decided to emulate it on XP with AutoHotKey.
It’s extremely simple and after using it I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner.
Here’s the AutoHotKey code to make the magic happen.
hello sir can you tell me it clearly i didntunderstand how to use it
@dharma What part didn’t you understand?
i have downloaded it & executed but what is the shrtcut key you specified..?
@Paranthaman It’s Ctrl-Alt-N.
hello sir,plz give me the keyboard shortcut key for creating a new folder……
@Remya Did you read the post?
I press F10 and then F key and hit enter key twice, and that’s the easiest way I could create new folder in xp.
@Mawia Thanks. I don’t have any XP machines to try this on but it looks like a quick way to do it.
sir, may know how to create a new folder with shortcut keys
in windows xp
The real answer is not to use Windows XP. It’s no longer supported by Microsoft, meaning no more security updates. And there have already been some nasty ones discovered. But the AutoHotkey code I posted will work on XP.
