    Send To

    How do you add an item to the Send To, I had done it some years ago, but have forgotten how now?

    Depending upon your specific operating system...
    Vista and Windows 7 will have permissions issues to get around in order to access the send to folder, but Windows XP should be fairly easy to get at.

    Ensure you are logged-on as administrator.

    First, make sure that you are capable of seeing hidden files and folders within the explorer shell; Go to tools, folder options.
    On the veiw tab, deselect "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)".
    Then navigate to your user profile, usually under, C:\Users\yourname.

    Vista/Windows 7
    Hard & Dirty method:
    Right click on the send to fold and select properties, then the "security" tab, once there remove "everyone" from "group or user names".
    Quick and easy method:
    Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista

    Here are the send to folder locations:

    XP: c:\Documents and Setting\userid\sendto
    Vista / Win 7: C:\Users\userid\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo (c:\users\userid\sendto is a link to this folder and was retained only for legacy apps that expect the old XP location (there is also a C:\Program Files link that points to c:\Users). You do not have to change the security of this link to add things the the actual sendto folder.)

    To add things to the sendto, in Explorer, right-click on an executable file and click Create Shortcut. Then drag the shortcut to the above folder.

    Note that the application must be able to accept a file as a command parameter for it to work with send to.
