Idea: Pop out from directory
« on: September 18, 2008, 05:48:33 AM »
For people like myself who unrar/unzip a lot it can become a pain when the item we unzip (into the current directory) unzips but also creates a sub directory so this means going into that subdirectory , highlighting everything , cut and then navigating back to the parent directory and pasting.

It would be cool if we could highlight files, right click and select a 'pop out' option where all selected files were moved the directory above.

Thanks for reading :-)

Hi!
And welcome to DC :)

I know someone complained about this earlier.
There's a better solution than what you're thinking. Here on DC, someone made a program that unzips stuff always to the top directory, thus, it never creates the subdirectory you mentioned (even if it exists in the rar) ;).
Unfortunatelly, after a quick search, I wasn't able to find this program. But I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about and will get you a nice link :)

all selected files were moved the directory above.

just drag the selected files to the parent folder, or any other folder, in the folder pane.  instant copy.

 :tellme: Try MoveUp!

Not heavily tested... Just download, compile to an exe using AutoHotkey, run it and choose Install MoveUp into SendTo.

To use it, select the files to move to the parent folder, rightclick one of them and choose SendTo - MoveUp.

Code: [Select]
;MoveUp.ahk
; Rightclick one or more files and select the contextmenu SendTo - MoveUp
