I don't know how you manage this; but when I use F7 a directory with the current time and date is created.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Not as far as i know. But it should stay in the dropdown menu, until it is filled up.

You don't have to write: <[D] [M] [Y] unless you specifically want spaces between date, month and year - if you don't need spaces you can just write <[DMY]

If you need that often, you can also use a script to create a folder with current date
That script can be execute from a button or via user command by an keyboard shortcut.

Try this button:

Code: Select all

TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
PowerShell
New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path """.\$((Get-Date).ToString('yyyy-MM-dd'))"""
PowerShell
PowerShell MD "YMD"

1
-1
(Copy this button-exchange-code and paste it to your TC buttonbar)



To create an button yourself:

Code: Select all

Command: PowerShell
Parameters: New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path """.\$((Get-Date).ToString('yyyy-MM-dd'))"""
Start path:
Icon file: PowerShell
ToolTip: PowerShell MD "YMD"
Program window: [X]Run minimized / [_]Run maximized 


HTH? :D




Shorter version would be (but less understandable):
New-Item -Item Dir ".\$((Get-Date).ToString('yyyy-MM-dd'))"

The triplet """quotes""" are needed for use in an TC button.
