You know how you can right-click on a file or folder and go to Send To? What to more options to it? First, make a shortcut to the folder. Select this shortcut and cut it (Ctrl+C). Now go to C:\Documents and Settings\Your_username\SendTo in XP and 2000 or C:\Windows\SendTo in 98 and paste it (Ctrl+V). You can rename whatever you what. :thumbsup:

The SendTo folder is hidden, so you may need to unhide the files

Windows ME is almost the same as Windows 98 so it should be in C:\Windows\SendTo. Is it not?

Hucker, good one. :thumbsup: Now I have a Send To: My Toolbox ! :trumpet:

Edit: Excellent, really. Downloads... System Reports... Tips and Tutorials...all just got a lot easier. You don't know how many times I ungratefully accepted as my only choice off the desktop... My Documents. I think of your tip as taking the governor off my fuel-injected V8 & finding a state where the speed limits have been lifted on the interstate!! :flowers:

This is one of the best hints/tips i have seen for a long time. I download remote server back-ups everyday, which need to be dated and put into an archives folder, plus i'm always updating graphics and webpages, so there's always a bit of clutter in my computer folders.
Since reading this i have added my "archives folder", "graphics folder" and "web page back-up folder" to my "send to...." list.
It has saved me a lot of time organizing files, Thank you HuckerJ for sharing this with us :thumbsup:

Chief.

When I right click on this page I don't even get a send to. I have XP 6.1. Am I missing something here? :thumbsup:


I think I used to have send to on any page.

The send to is in windows explorer, not internet explorer. Go to a folder on your computer and right-click

Using Windows XP > Computer Setup and Maintenance > Tips
Add an Item to the Send To Menu
Published: April 1, 2002

Mark L. Ferguson, Austin, Texas

You can create a new shortcut on the Send To menu, for example, one that goes to a frequently-used folder.

1.


Open My Computer, and double-click the drive where Windows is installed, which is usually drive C.

2.


Double-click the Documents and Settings folder, and then double-click the folder for the particular user.

3.


Double-click the Send To folder.

The Send To folder is hidden by default. To see the Send To folder, click Tools, click Folder Options, and then click Show hidden files and folders.

4.


On the File menu, point to New, and then click Shortcut.

5.


Follow the instructions to create a shortcut.

Now, when you right-click a file, and click Send To, the shortcut to the item you selected will be an option. You can create shortcuts to local or network programs, files, folders, computers, or Internet addresses.

Guys, thank you very much :thumbsup: I have been trying to remember how to do that for months. I edited the list once with Tweak XP or something but never remembered where or how i did it, cheers!

My nomination for most useful shortcut to include with the SendTo option folder is Notepad or Wordpad.

I just use the SendTo program. It was recommended in one of Fred Langa's columns. I did add a shortcut to the SendTo folder in the SendTo folder, so if I ever want to add something there, just right click > Sent To > SendTo.

:thumbsup: With Windows XP, 98, ME to add to the sent to folder all you really have to do is create your shortcut copy or cut it click start click run type in sendto that will open the sendto folder and paste your shortcut there.
