Copy and move selected file to folders

#1 Post by campy222 » 14.10.2017, 21:49

I would like to be able to use 1 button or hot key to first copy a selected file to a predefined folder and then move the file to a different predefined folder.

Can an external program or bat file be used for this? If so how is it implemented.

Try this (not sure it works or is the best solution)
Insert this in parameter of the button you create (quotation marks are important) - replace copyfolderpath and movefolderpath with your folders:

Code: Select all

/c for %i in (%ActivSel%) do (copy %ActivSel% "CopyFolderPath\%~ni%~xi") && for %i in (%ActivSel%) do (move %ActivSel% "MoveFolderPath\%~ni%~xi")
Also "Separate for each selected item" must be checked.
