Create Directories in Bulk on Windows 11

You can bulk create folders in Windows 11 using either File Explorer or the Command Prompt. Here's how to do it using both methods:

Using File Explorer

  1. Open File Explorer by pressing Win + E on your keyboard or by clicking on the File Explorer icon in the taskbar.
  2. Navigate to the location where you want to create the folders.
  3. Right-click in the blank space within the File Explorer window.
  4. Hover over "New" in the context menu.
  5. Select "Folder."
  6. A new folder will be created, labeled "New Folder." You can rename it to whatever you want.
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 to create multiple folders.

Using Command Prompt

  1. Press Win + X on your keyboard to open the Power User menu.
  2. Select Windows Terminal (Admin) to open the Command Prompt with administrative privileges. (You can also use Command Prompt without administrative privileges, but it might not work in certain directories.)
  3. Navigate to the directory where you want to create the folders using the cd command. For example, if you want to create folders on the Desktop, you can use the command:
    cd Desktop
  4. Once you're in the desired directory, you can use the mkdir command followed by the names of the folders you want to create. For example, to create three folders named "Folder1," "Folder2," and "Folder3," you would use the command:
    mkdir Folder1 Folder2 Folder3
  5. Press Enter, and the folders will be created in the specified directory.

These methods allow you to quickly create multiple folders at once, saving you time and effort.
