Add shortcuts to your Send-To menu

In Windows 2000/XP you can add/remove content from your Send-To menu just by navigating to the SendTo directory of your profile (eg: C:Documents and SettingsXerxesSendTo

In Vista they changed the location of the SendTo directory and I never found out where until now! If you navigate to the shell extension “sendto” (eg: Start –> Run –> “shell:sendto”), it opens up the list of items in the send-to menu when you right-click a file in Explorer.

I normally like to add a shortcut Notepad so no matter what file type i’m opening, I can have quick access to drop it in Notepad if necessary.

  1. For an incredibly meta experience put a shortcut to shell:sendto in the SendTo folder itself. That means you can add shortcuts to the send to folder at will as well 🙂
