How to make directories with current data name in Total Commander

To quickly create directories with the name equal to the current date through the Total Commander:

  1. At first, let’s create a cmd script that makes a directory with the desired name:

In the first line of the script, the desired name for the directory is created in the format YYYY.MM.DD.

The second script line creates a directory with the specified name along the path passed in the input parameter %1

Save the script in a convenient place, for example, plugins subdirectory …\TotalCommander\Plugins\ with the name “cur_dur.cmd”.

  1. Drag this file onto the Total Commander panel to make a calling button for it.
  2. Right-click on it and select “Change …”


in the “Parameters” field.

%P – is the path to the Total Commander active panel.

  1. Click OK to save the changes.

Now clicking this button creates a directory with the current data name in active Total Commander panel.
