Creating a folder hierarchy via the explorer shell.

I'm running Win2k. Maybe this functionality exists in WinXP, I haven't used it enough to know.

I'd really like it if explorer would let me create a folder hierarchy in one operation by allowing me to delimit folder names with \'s when I'm creating a new folder.

So basically if I right click on my desktop and add a new folder, then replace the text “New Folder” with “Program Files\EditPlus 2\old files” then three folders will be created. It can ask me to confirm that's what I want to do to, if it feels like it.

With command extensions enabled, mkdir does this automatically ( like -p in yanix ).

Why not in explorer?
