    add Edge to SendTo

    How do I add Microsoft Edge to the SendTo menu in the context menu? I dragged an Edge shortcut to the folder, but it isn't showing in the menu.

    Joe, I can see Edge in the SendTo Folder when I go to the folder, but Edge doesn't show up in the context menu SendTo;.

    Maybe it is context sensitive. Have you tried right clicking something that Edge would render?

    Joe, if you mean have I tried right-clicking an internet link, then yes, I have. Edge is in the folder, but it doesn't even show up as a choice. IE and Firefox and Chrome all do -- just drag and drop those links in the folder, and they are good to go. But then they are all just "regular" shortcuts.to start with, so then...

    Why did MS make such a big deal about removing IE from the shell so that it takes an ordinary shortcut to have it on the desktop, and then turn around and make Edge so obscure in relation? Can't find the icon path without jumping through hurdles, can't set it up in SendTo to make the transition to Edge more user-friendly...

    Ah me...oh well...

    Joe, in addition, I found this link:

    http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7...a.html#option1

    Which shows exactly how to get a "normal looking: Edge shortcut that DOES show up in SendTo -- but it don't work either.

    Don't know for sure but that could be the way the shortcut target is constructed. The object being sent is being passed to explorer.exe not to the shell address which is the target for explorer.exe.

    That sounds a lot like (my) the main issue with Chrome. Chrome won't launch standard shortcuts either. By that I mean shortcuts created by either Firefox or IExplorer. Not using standard shortcut formats or something disallows their being able to process "typical" shortcuts.

    Is there a good reason why the construction would be made differently to preclude standard use?

    Edge is a Universal app. I guess those get invoked in a different manner.
