Hello,
I am making via a loop 4 .txt files. I would like to create 4 files and move each one of 4.txt files in these 4 folders (I mean each folder would have one .txt files).
How could I make it?

You may try the following
for i =1:4
currentFolder = sprintf('Folder%d',i);
mkdir(currentFolder)
cd(currentFolder)
fileID = fopen('FileName.txt','w');
% Write to file
cd ..
end

Try the following code
for n=1:numel(st);
for i=1:size(nam);
% Uncomment below line to create folder for each m*.text file
% currentFolder = sprintf('Folder%d%d',n,i);
% mkdir(currentFolder)
% cd(currentFolder)
FP=fopen(sprintf('m%g0.txt',i),'wt');
fprintf(FP,'%s\t',num2str(Results));
fclose(FP);
% cd ..
D = 'absolute/relative path to where the files are saved';
N = 25; % number of files
C = cell(1,N);
for k = 1:N
F = fullfile(D,sprintf('m%u.txt',k));
C{k} = dlmread(F);
end
M = vertcat(C{:});
% Create a folder for each final.txt
currentFolder = sprintf('FinalFolder%d%d',n,i);
mkdir(currentFolder)
cd(currentFolder)
dlmwrite('final.txt',M,'\t')
cd ..
end
end

ok, one question. Is there any way to replace dlmwritte with writematrix? I think that the problem is here

Yes, you may replace dlmwrite with writematrix
writematrix(M,'final.txt','Delimiter','tab')
Refer the below links for replacing dlmwrite and dlmread with writematrix and readmatrix respectively
