How to create a Capitalized folder name

By scott ·
I have a problem to create a capitalized folder name on NT 4.0. The name
always changed backup to lower case except first letter if there is only one word for that folder. It works ok for more than one word name.

Does anyone know any tricks? appreciate your help!

How to create a Capitalized folder name

Easy one, covered fully by Technet:

Put simply, you have a few options:

1. Install IE4.0, and enable the desktop update. This gives you an option under Start/Settings/Folders & Icons/View to select "Allow All Uppercase Names".

2. Create the directory name with a special character in it (eg. a comma). This forces the system to keep the case as you entered it.

3. Mixed case names (such as FileName) preserve the case as you enter it.

Hope this helps. Personally, I'd go for the IE4 option - it's the easiest one, and doesn't compromise your naming strategy.
