  • How to Open Multiple Folders in Different Locations at Once

In this instance, I am using Windows 10. Let us begin.

Open Multiple Folders at Once in Windows 10

Method #1

Select the folders you want to open and then press Ctrl, Shift and Enter keys at the same time.

Now, you can see all the selected folders opened at once in separate windows.

Here’s an alternate way to open multiple folders at once:

  1. Select the folders you want to open.
  1. Right-click on it.
  1. In the context menu, select Open in new window.

Method #2

Select the folders you want to open and then hit Enter key.

Here’s the difference between the above method and this one:

The above method opens all the selected folders at once in the separate windows. And the window in which you perform this task remains intact.

This one opens one selected folder in the window in which you perform this task. And opens the remaining ones in separate windows.

Here’s an alternate way:

  1. Select the folders you want to open.
  1. Right-click on it.
  1. In the context menu, select Open.

Open Multiple Folders in Different Locations at Once

The above methods are for the folders in the same location.

If you want to open multiple folders at once which are at various places, then follow the below steps:

  1. Open Notepad.
  1. Type start and then enter the path of the folder you want to open. Make sure that the path does not have quotes on both sides.
  1. Now do the same for all the folders you like to open. And your Notepad will look this:

Start C:\Users\traj5\Downloads

Start C:\Users\traj5\Pictures

  1. Save the file in the name you want. But make sure the file extension is bat. In our instance, the file name is openmfolder.bat.

That is it. From now on, double click the file (in our case, openmfolder.bat) and you can see the folders opened.
