I can't count how many times I've just needed a random junk folder to dump some temporary data or, or to use to dump some quick logs or working files. A lot of times, it ends up cluttering my desktop. Or I messily reuse a folder for the thousandth time.

My eventual solution to this problem was to create a toolbar on my windows 10 desktop. In this toolbar I include a handful of quick links to folders I often want to go to... AND a shortcut to a batch script that creates a new folder on my "junk" drive (j:) and opens the folder. One click, new folder to dump crap into. EZPZ. Just make sure to change j: and my paths to whatever make sense to you.

@echo off
for /f "tokens=2 delims==" %%a in ('wmic OS Get localdatetime /value') do set "dt=%%a"
set "YY=%dt:~2,2%" & set "YYYY=%dt:~0,4%" & set "MM=%dt:~4,2%" & set "DD=%dt:~6,2%"
set "HH=%dt:~8,2%" & set "Min=%dt:~10,2%" & set "Sec=%dt:~12,2%"

set "datestamp=%YYYY%%MM%%DD%" & set "timestamp=%HH%%Min%%Sec%"
set "fullstamp=%YYYY%-%MM%-%DD%_%HH%-%Min%-%Sec%"

cd j:
mkdir j:\temp
mkdir j:\temp\%fullstamp%
explorer j:\temp\%fullstamp%
