click on drive

select Add New Folder

click on folder

select Add new folder

repeat as necessary

add as many to the folder you want more in and add a folder to folder you want sub folders in

 

if folders exist somewhere else click copy and past to where-ever you want to have them

just do it

you can create a folder called Folders and fill it with folders

leave it empty

copy and past it when needed and rename

you will have a templet to start with everytime

more command line stuff here

 

this is something that I did regularly at work on old unix boxes.. frankly easier to do there than in Windows or Mac environments unless you're familiar with command line scripts. 

 

depending on how many levels of subfolders ya want, a recursive script might be the way to go. 

and before you ask, no, I can't write it for you ;) those brain cells are long ..... well not gone.... just no longer accessible

how bout this LOL

Punched card - Wikipedia

thousands of lines of code punched out of these mother fuckers....I filled up dozens of file boxes in my early years... debugging was a beeeyotch.

seriously remember giggling like a schoolgirl the first time I got to type code into an editor on a screen and save a file to a tape.

Same as everywhere... Google powershell tutorial. But I just reread your first post, want to create 10 folders with increasing digits for the folder names. 

Age old .bat (dos) commands work fine:

for /L %a in (1,1,10) do md Blues%a

or in a batch file

for /L %%a in (1,1,10) do md Blues%%a

(I'm so used to linux took me awhile to remember how) But for 10 directories I'd likely just type in "md Blues1" hit return,  uparrow to get the command back and change the 1 to 2, etc...

80 Meg drive?  I just got rid of a stand from  one of those.  It served well in my workshop for decades.
