Send To Toys is a good way to do this. Otherwise, the context menu (right click menu) is linked to many different registry keys so that it can select the proper context menu to display when clicking on different types of files, folders, web pages, etc.

You can easily add items to the Send To context menu by copying a shortcut to that folder on your system. Just search your hard drive for SendTo (It should be located at: C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile Name\SendTo )
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

If you are experienced in programming, then you can write a special dll that will handle context menu, for instance, displaying some option only if some specific files selected.

In other case - just dig how to do it with regedit, it's simple, but you will be able to add some option to the context menu of files of certain type.

Do one, and post it. A simple one that is a program that many people may have, but it doesn't show on the right-click.

If you're interested in more heavy customization, right click to programs is the default behavior of Windows replacement shells like litestep and bblean.
