What is it good for?

In a few words: this small freeware utility extends your Total Commander's directory creating capabilities - after installing it, you can create a bunch of (even multi-leveled!) directories with a single click, with numerous possibilities...

  • NEW: Ability to set the directory attributes
  • NEW: Lots of hotkeys (see the Changelog / About dialog)
  • NEW: Batch directory creation (Decimal / Roman / ABC)
  • NEW: Template Manager - now you can use your own predefined user templates
  • NEW: Configuration window - detailed customization of the utility
  • NEW: 6 built-in window color theme (optional) [you can create your own themes too]

  • Full integration to Total Commander (F7, Shift + F7, or any other key combination)
  • Multi-language support (English, Hungarian, Russian, Dutch, Spanish, German, Danish, Chinese, Ukrainian, Korean)
  • Normal directory creation mode: almost the same as Total Commander's "New Directory" dialog, with a lots of advantages
  • Extended directory creation mode: you can type in (or load from file) a list of directories, then create them with a single click
  • Support for multi-leveled directory creation (directories with more than one subdir)
  • Templates - create directory with predefined templates (e.g. "New Directory (%D-%N-%y)")
  • Replacements: you can use environment variables (like %OS% or %USERNAME%) in the name of the new directory
  • Basic variables: you can use vars like %s (current second), %x (unix time) etc.
  • Special variables: you can use vars like {pc} (current PC name), and {wact} (current Winamp track's title)
  • Drag & Drop support (change the current directory by dragging a new dir to the extDir's window; you can also drag & drop files there, in this case the same named directories will be created)
  • Intelligent selection: press Ctrl + Tab to select the next part of the new directory's name (the next part after space)
  • Instant Modifiers: Space2Dot, Dot2Space, Invert Case - more to come, stay tuned!
  • Refresh the current path in extDir simply by pressing F5 or Ctrl + R key combo after navigating to a new directory in Total Commander
  • Edit the current path manually (double-clicking on the path) - Total Commander is automatically navigated to the new path, if it exists
  • Enter directory after creation (optional)
  • Close extDir after directory creation (optional)
  • Undo function
  • ... and much more!
