Default Auto create a folder and move a file

Hi, I'm looking for a program that when I right click a file, there is an option to create a folder with the name of the file then move the file into the new folder.

What would be even better is if there is a way to automate the process, so for example a partition that when a file is added to it, from a download for example, it will automatically create a folder from the file name and then move the file into the folder.

Is there a program like this around?

There are many programs that allow you to modify or replace the Windows shell (user interface) and allow for automation, macros, menus, etc. This sort of topic comes up regularly so you could search the forums to see what people like. I don't have time to pick one out for you but someone else will.

Here you can look inBest Free Hotkey or Macro Recorder Utility but you may also find products in the related articles:
Best Free Start Menu Replacement
Best Free Program Launcher

There are many articles like this one from TechRepublic: Five apps for task automation
And Wikipedia has an article comparing macro recorders - nearly all are also editors which is what you need.

It might be worth your while to have a hunt around Donation Coder or even request such a program in their Coding Snacks section.

Having had a quick look now, I would go with Autohotkey. It's main advantages are its power and the many scripts you can download to implement many functions without having to do all the hard work. And DonationCoder has quite a few of them.
