Superb, I have 2 more suggestions:
3. Remember the last text in the text field (make it as option in ini probably?)
4. If you type in the text field, select first radio button automatically

Hello. Would it be possible to add a feature to find common text between files and use that as an name for the folder?
eg we have  files
[Chemistry] Workbook 01.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 02.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 03.rar
So the new folder is named [Chemistry] Workbook.

personally i think xd's idea is a nice one and I'd like to have a shell extension that could do that.  select a bunch of files, right-click, and it finds the common prefix (or suffix), makes a folder based on it, and moves files into it.

Hi, xd1986k, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

[Chemistry] Workbook 01.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 02.rar
[Chemistry] Workbook 03.rar

This is doable.  However, in your example, technically, the common text would be "[Chemistry] Workbook 0" right?

Ah that's an interesting point..
Technically you are right.

I guess it would be nice to (or have options to):
1. trim any digits off the end of the common prefix found
2. and/or not include any partial word (unless it is the FIRST word)

I think it is better to add a new option to ini file - autofill first field from any filename. It is much easier to edit autofilled value, than to write AI for this simple app.

One more thought:

You have an option called "Method=". You can code "Method=0" or "Method=-1" to enable autofill and disable "FolderName="

And 1 more suggestion:
autopaste a new name from a clipboard (and make it optional in ini)

just in case Skwire cannot help directly, here is a possible solution:
DONE: Change (sub) folder(s) date based on newest/oldest file in the folder

Hi, zramdt, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  In regards to your question, no, there currently is no way to make Files 2 Folder work that way.  However, please do check out the application that tomos referred to as I think it's designed to do what you want.

just in case Skwire cannot help directly, here is a possible solution:
DONE: Change (sub) folder(s) date based on newest/oldest file in the folder

I was going to suggest that program, too, tomos.

Hey thanks for the awesome program. I use it everyday.
First of all wanted to say that it works great but there are a few hiccups/suggestion.

1. I manually entered a string value with a location to my Files2Folder.exe to use it's icon. Looks more nice in the context menu. Maybe ask users upon installation?

2. Doesn't work with items on my desktop. Actually some weird shit is happening. I'll provide two examples, both from icons on my desktop. The two programs I tested right now (though I have tried this many times in the past) were WinDriStat and OpenIV [Drive space tree image viewer and GTAIV and V modding utility]
2.A. The WinDirStat made an empty folder in C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86) and did not take or make a copy of the file.
2B. The OpenIV app made it's way to C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\New Technology Studio\Apps and made a copy of the program, placed it in a folder of the name (which is kinda properly working) and changed the location in the target value of the original desired item from the desktop.

May this have something to do with them being shortcuts?

3. Finally I'm having issues in protected areas. I can't use the program in say Program Files. I assume this is due to UAC but I edited the properties of the original location of Files2Folder.exe and told it to run as administrator without any success. Trying to run it elevated only produced errors in an inability to locate the Files2Folder.exe item. I tried to run Files2Folders in a command prompt and didn't have any progress. Process Monitor showed the location of Files2Folder.exe with the targeted filed behind it as the command that was run but I guess there are trade secrets lol? Is this code opensource? I'm learning and would love a smaller program to learn a little. I'm at a dead end with Process Monitor and regedit trying to see how the program works.

Thanks
Paul

Hi, Paul, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   Thmbsup

Hey thanks for the awesome program. I use it everyday.

You're welcome; I'm glad you find it useful.

1. I manually entered a string value with a location to my Files2Folder.exe to use it's icon. Looks more nice in the context menu. Maybe ask users upon installation?

I'll consider this.  Which hive/key/value did you add?

2. Doesn't work with items on my desktop.
[...]
May this have something to do with them being shortcuts?

Correct, the program doesn't work with .LNK or .URL files.  However, for me at least, regular items seem to work fine on my desktop.  Keep in mind that I have UAC disabled on my computer.

3. Finally I'm having issues in protected areas. I can't use the program in say Program Files. I assume this is due to UAC

It's almost certainly due to UAC.  I know it's not much help, but the app works fine for me in Program Files.  Again, though, I have UAC disabled.  Please keep in mind that F2F was originally developed in 2009 on XP and, due to the massive shell code changes after XP, I'm surprised it works at all under Windows Vista/7/8/10.
