File 2 Folder: Move Selected Files To New Folders Through Context Menu

In order to be able to easily find the file you are looking for, they need to be sorted into separate folders and subfolders with one type of files grouped together. But most people simply don’t do this, as they keep placing them randomly. Or, usually we download all the items, such as documents, music, photos, videos and other files into the same Downloads directory and hardly move them to their destined locations. To sort them, first you have to create separate folders for all the file types, and then copy the files manually into the new folders. This is the main reason that we keep putting it off, and eventually, the folder gets completely cluttered up.It also makes it more difficult to look for some particular file, as gradually we also forget where the actual file was placed.  If you think that time has come to finally organize all your cluttered folders, then today, we discovered a shell extension that will help you in reducing the tediousness involved in sorting your files.
