In explorer I'd like to be able to highlight a group of icons and then right click-> send to-> New Folder. How can I accomplish this? Bonus points if the focus is on the folder name after this completes.

See this, Right click copy to, move to

You would then need to select the folder location and then click the "Make new folder" button

I still feel this can be done with less effort – YHVH Jul 7 '10 at 2:36
That still takes two steps. Is there anyway to Add that "Send to New Folder" functionality? One click and you have moved all files into a new folder, versus the ugly having to select something from a dialog box. – user82023 May 19 '11 at 16:22

You could do it via the 'Edit' menu item in Vista. First make the menu bar visible via the 'Organize' icon on the top left of an Explorer window >> then select Layout >> Menu Bar.

Then after highlighting what you want click 'Edit' >> 'Copy To Folder' or 'Move To Folder'.

You can create a new folder from that explorer pop up window thereafter.
