    Send To Folder (Win XP-Office 2000)

    We have a combination of 98 and XP workstations here in our office. I have created a shortcut to My Computer Printers so that I don't have to open the document to print in C:WindowsSENDTO. I would like to do the same for an XP machine but I don't see a folder called SENDTO. Where is that folder located or how do you do that on an XP machine? Thanks!

    In Windows XP, each user has his/her own SendTo folder:

    Cocuments and Settings<username>SendTo

    where <username> is the login name.

    I noticed that, Dave. But I did have a problem. When browsing for the path my control panel was not showing up under My Computer so that I could get to my Printers. Everything else was there but not the control panel. For the 98 station all it did was go to C:windowssendto folder. I created a shortcut there to My Computer-Printers. Now all anyone has to do if they need a document printed is go to the folder and right click the document >select send to >select printer choice. I don't have that XP available to me this afternoon so I'll need to look at it tomorrow.

    Hi, Pam ~

    In XP, you can right-click on the document and select 'Print'. Will that not suffice in your environment?

    You can even select a BUNCH of files and then Right click, and each will be sent to the printer and printed. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, guys! Your way is certainly quicker and easier than how I was doing it.

    But, remember that the above method will send to the DEFAULT printer. So you may need to change the default, if you have more than one printer, and the default is NOT the one you want to use.
    Happy days.
