Create a New Folder Containing Selected Items in Mac OS X
You can now select any number of files from the Mac OS X desktop or a folder and create a new folder containing those selected items:
- Select files you want to create a new folder containing
- Right-click on one of the selected files and choose “New Folder with Selection (x items)”
You can also select the items and go from the “File” menu in the Finder to the same “New Folder with Selection” option, but right-clicking is quicker. There’s supposed to be a keyboard shortcut to do this too, Control+Command+N, but it doesn’t seem to work on any of the Macs I’ve tested, give it a try and maybe it will work for you.
This alongside the ability to cut and paste files finally in Mac OS X are two of the more subtle but useful enhancements to the file system that arrived in more recent versions of OS X, from Lion to Mavericks onward.
