    Move files to a custom sub-folder using context menu.


    Hi,
    I have many Folders related to work and personal stuff. Example:
    • Utilities
    • Accounts
    • Subscriptions
    • Bills
    etc.

    Each of these folders has a sub-folder named "Archive" where I move files when I am done with them.

    I was wondering, is there is a way to have a context menu entry, say "Move to Archive" or "Archive It", such that I can select one or more file, right-click & select the entry, and the selected files are moved to the sub-folder named Archive in whatever Folder I am working in.

    So if I am working in Bills, the files will get moved to the Archive sub-folder under Bills, and so on.

    I am open to a registry hack or a third-party app, whatever achieves this result.

    :)

    Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown Move files to a custom sub-folder using context menu. :(
