Text 2 Folders creates folders based on list written in a text file. This contrasts the normal method for creating multiple folders, which is clicking "New Folder" repeatedly and then renaming the individual folders. Just create text document in Windows Notepad or other text program and save it, then run the program to generate folders. Separate folder names by putting them on a separate lines in the text file. For example a text file with the following text:

Documents
Pictures
Music
Video

... will create the directories Documents, Pictures, Music, and Video.

Occasionally, i use a procedure that ends up time consuming anyway:
1. search for desired file search app (usually, regex in filelocator lite).
2. select filenames in results.
3. "export" those filenames to clipboard.
4. paste into batch file, with appropriate text find&replace

and manual edits to create batch commands.
5. run batch

@granny Are you sure FreeCommander can do this? I know it can create nested folders separated with a slash, but how can it create peer folders? FreeCommander XE supports | to separate folders like TotalCommander, but plain FreeCommander doesn't.

Nope works great with resize window in 64bit.
But GUI is terrible !! Hope we can switc back to good 7 style in future!!

Napiophelios on 2014-11-26 17:04

well I am using a little Asus netbook and I have never had it act like this before this update.

I imagine the tiles arent resizable so they have to have so much room to look pretty I guess

it still sucks
even if its just happening to me :)

@Naphiopelios: no, my friend, you're not alone in this. I'm also having trouble with CCleaner's maximized state. Because of my PowerPro bar, CCleaner's window goes off-screen. I do consider this a bug, because none of my other apps behave like this, not even CCleaner version 4.

The plethora of information to display including Fan speeds, CPU, HDD, and MOBO temps in the notification tray makes this thing perfect for me. I let Process Explorer handle the memory/cpu/network/etc usage and let this thing display cpu/mobo/etc temps and I get a wealth of information in one area. It doesn't use too much resources either. Highly recommended.

@Ateka: The most important part -- The driver is installed when you run and it is removed after you close it. The HKCU key is settings and not important. It's not stealth, it requires admin rights but it IS portable.

great program. i wish it can select the port (like 5353 etc) to defeat ISP's hijacking.

freakazoid on 2014-12-30 23:29

bzl333 - Try QuickSetDNS or Public DNS Server Tool and see if they offer such functionality. Both are listed in the Similar/alternative apps section above. I haven't tested either program to see if it matches your needs though.
