Post New Requests Here / Folder Organizer/Sorter

As always for me anyway, please let me know if this has been done before or available elsewhere.

So my name is Larry and I am a file hoarder!

I deal with a lot of different file types for my assorted hobbies. I also have a lot of files contained in compressed files that need to be sorted according to content.

I have files downloaded from Thingiverse for my 3D printer, CO2 laser and CNC which contain different file types. I have to open the compressed files and see what they contain. It would be easier to just open a program and search a directory to sort out the files.

What I am looking for;

Be able to input a folder destination (create one if not done), scan for files with a specific extension in/out of a compressed folder, and/or scan for specific directories in a compressed folder and then move/copy files in target directory.

Of course being able to input multiples would be nice but not necessary.

I apologize if this has been discussed anywhere on the forum but I did not turn up anything during a search.

Google+ is shutting down in four months (April 2019). They offer a service known as Takeaway that will download your G+ data but not viewable in a very convenient way.
In the G+ universe, the posts are shown and accessible on one webpage. When downloaded, each post is it's own html page. It would be nice if there was a way to view all the posts without having to open each one individually. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated by myself and the G+ community.


I work with CNC machines that uses gcode for programming vector coordinates and machine function. One program does not output the code in the proper format so I have to manually add spaces, change letters for machine function ect. I would like to do this with a batch type function. I have used Notepad ++ put have not been able to figure out how to do so with it. I am open to all suggestions and programs. Thanks

Quick example, this text;


Would look like this after edit;

X00.00 Y00.00
S100 M3

The code could be from a few hundred lines to thousands of lines and it sure gets tedious to manually change.

I work with CNC equipment that uses g-code to control the motion. It is a simple text file with machine specific codes and vector positioning. I use a program that outputs the code in a not so generic form and I also need to change some of the codes for use with a laser. I need to add spaces, replace characters ect and would like to do so with the least amount of manual repetition. I have used Notepad ++ but have not figured out how to accomplish this. Any ideas or programs to use would be great. Thanks!

I have seen this around the net and wonder if anyone here has come across this issue.

From an article on PCWorld;

"To save time, some third-party Windows desktop developers used a shorthand to check the version name (not number) of Windows they were installing their app to. Instead of coding apps to check for Windows 95 or Windows 98, developers coded instructions to check for "Windows 9."
