I want to automatically name folders ?

Hi, can any one help me to automatically name new folders. I make
folders for inventory items. I name them using the date and time. It's
quite time consuming to have to look at the clock each time and type the
info into the new folder naming box. In answer, I'd like to be able to
press a button or two and have a folder appear with its name being the
date and time.
Thanks in advance Bill

In XYplorer (file manager) you can rename folders to the current date/time
with a simple one-line script like this:
rename , "<date yyyymmdd_hhnnss>";
You can map any keyboard shortcut onto a script, so e.g. Ctrl+D would then
rename the selected folder to "20090516_082149".

For new folders it's even easier. You can define them to be created as e.g.
yyyymmdd_hhnnss right away, so on pressing Ctrl+N (for "New Folder") you
will get a folder called "20090516_082149".
