    Dare I run TweakUI on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS? I only want it for a few tools that I'm used to having while using Windows XP.

    Most of all I'd like to use the Send to X, (send to any folder is so useful and easy).

    I don't believe it will work with Windows 7, let alone the 64 bit version.
    A very usefull app imo

    In an earlier thread, Joe had suggested the program [topic=500529]'Send to' Toys[/topic] (See http://www.gabrieleponti.com/software/ ==> SendTo Toys 2.5). It worked with Vista, so maybe it will work with Windows 7? Review for using on Vista: Power Up and Manage Your Windows Send To Menu with Send To Toys - How-To Geek.

    I didn't think it would be compatible, just hoping against hope. It was a very useful app, been using it since I had Win 95 with my very first computer. I went to Kelly's Korner and tried to install Send to Any Folder, but was informed when the install started that it wasn't compatible with my operting system. Most of the good old stuff's not compatible.

    I've just installed Sent To Toys on my Win 7, 64-bit machine and it seems to be working perfectly. When I opened the folder it had 4 tabs: Send To; Folders; Clipboard; and Default Mail Receipient. Now I have to check the Control Panel and see if it's there.

    If anyone has it or is going to get it, please tell me what to enter into the Default Mail Receipient window. I don't understand exactly what I should enter there.

    Thanks guys for the link, good find.

    Here's the latest information. Send to Toys is working perfectly. When I right clicked a file I had all the send to destinations in place. I now have 17 listed, I am now one happy camper.

    A lot of what was in TweakUI is built into Win7. Not everything of course. For folders, hold the shift key before right clicking. You will get a bunch of additional options in the context menu, including my favorite, Command Window Here.
