A bit, but figured that two google searches and a search on superuser didn't yield ultra clear post merited another. –  goldisfine Jul 22 '13 at 20:14
How can you Google for something like that even once (let alone twice) and not find the answer? 4 words: "create folder command line"! –  Austin ''Danger'' Powers Nov 24 '13 at 12:47
