Creating and organizing folders in Vista and Windows 7 has always been easy. Windows 7 and Windows 8 lets users create new folders with Ctrl + Shift + N hotkey as well. Libraries is another fantastic feature available in latest versions of Windows to organize files and folders in an easy way.
Most of us use the Ctrl + Shift + N hotkey to create new folders in Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. Novice users do a right-click and then select New Folder option to create a new folder. Now, users who are looking for a smart way to create new folders in Windows can download and install Smart Folders, a free tool that brings iOS style folder creating functionality to Windows.
Windows users who also own an iPhone or iPad would know that the iOS lets the user create a new folder just by dragging one app over another app. The same feature can be enabled in Windows as well with the help of Smart Folders software.
Let’s say you have two pictures on your desktop. Now, if you want to move both pictures to a new folder you just have to drag one picture on top of the other picture to create a new folder and move both files to the newly created folder.
If you would like to move multiple pictures or files to a new folder, just select all but one file that you would like to move, and then drag the selected files on top of left alone file to create a new folder and move all files to the new folder. You will be given an option to enter a name for the new folder.
Smart Folders works fine on both x86 and x64 versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. We tested it on Windows 8 x64 and can confirm that it works without any issues.
Download, double-click on the installer and click install button to enable the feature in Windows. Check out the below video to see Smart Folders in action.
