I have a batch file command set up in a folder on my PC of which creates a new subfolder fine but what im trying to do is to be able to auto run that batch file when I click on the folder icon on the desktop.

What I need to do then if poss for a message box or something come up to tell me to input the reference number and that will rename the new subfolder.

After that if poss there will be files in the original folder that I need moving into the new subfolder that ive just renamed.

The command that I have in the .BAT file at the moment is

@echo off MD DOWNLOAD

Am I able to do that if so could you make it simple please as totally new to batch files.
