All folders with the names written in first column of excel will be created on your entered path (local machine location)
For example: Write down x,y,z in the first column of excel then press, “Ctrl+k”, then in the next window/dialog box that pops up, add your local machine path, say “C:\Local Folder” and click on enter. In the Local Folder on C drive, 3 folders will be created named x,y and z.

- Collect names of folders located in local machine in excel: At the outset, make one cell active i.e. select one single cell to begin adding the names from, then press “Ctrl+g”, thereafter in the next dialog box that pops up, add your local path where the folders are situated for which the names are to be taken in the excel.  In the end, press ‘Enter’ and all folder names will appear in the respective excel column starting from the cell you initially selected.
For example: If a folder in your local machine has subfolders named x,y and z then simply select any cell you want to begin copying the folder names, say “A1” then click “Ctrl+g”, then in the next dialog box add your local machine path say “C:\Local Folder” where folders named x,y and z are sitting and press “Enter”.
