Create Custom Dated and Time-Stamped Folders with Custom Folder


Create Custom Dated and Time-Stamped Folders with Custom Folder

Windows has a context menu where you can create a new folder and it creates a new Folder with the same name. Custom Folder is a handy freeware utility which adds a highly customisable “New Folder” function to the context menu to the Windows Explorer. Using a single dialogue to manage user-defined templates, Custom Folder facilitates the creation of custom dated and time-stamped folders and even deals with incremental naming in case there is already a sub-folder with the same name.

Custom Folders

You can right click on any area and select the option “Create custom name folder”.

Custom folder Names

You can chose from any combination of the following:

  • Static text:
    Place static text anywhere in the mask to define your default folder name
  • Date:
    Chose from a two or four digit year mask; two digit month mask and two digit day mask
  • Time:
    Chose from a two digit hour, minute and/or second field and add an optional three digit millisecond field
  • Increment:
    By adding a simple switch, Custom Folder will automatically add a three digit incremented identifier to a default mask, making it ideal for backups or version control.
  • Trim:
    Helping you to keep your filing tidy, the “trim” switch instructs Custom Folder to trim any blank spaces from either end of the default folder name, ensuring that subsequent searches or batch operations are not bugged by unseen leading or trailing spaces.
