Asking what to type in the run box to create a directory is a real question, but it does belong on Superuser. –  derobert Sep 6 '09 at 8:42
What happens to this question if the person that asked it doesn't register on superuser? –  alex Sep 9 '09 at 11:52

Creating a directory from the command line is done with the mkdir or md command.

Since md is an internal command of the command interpreter and not an external program, you can't use it directly from start-> run.

What you can do is type the command

cmd /c md "\path\to\newdir"


in the command box.

You can omit the quotes if the path has no spaces in it.

(Edited: Thanks for the helpful comments)

actualy quotes should be around the path\to\newdir if it contains any spaces, otherwise you can omit them –  T. Kaltnekar Sep 8 '09 at 6:07
