    Can I make the "send to" function a "move" rather than a "copy"?

    Like the title says, when I add something to the "send to" folder, I'd like it to move there rather than copy there. Is this possible?

    Press and hold down the Shift key. Do your SendTo thing. Release the Shift key.

    The Shift trick has an additional effect -- displaying the expanded SendTo menu -- but that probably won't be a problem.

    Thanks iT. Neat trick. This is why I love this forum. You all know the answer to everything.

    So . . . where are my car keys?

    Great info Joe. I'll try both techniques and see which I prefer. I'll probably keep both.

    Thanks again all.
