Adding items to Send To

Send To is an option available when you right click any file in Windows. It can greatly simplify file management, especially routine tasks.

1. Browse to the \Windows\SendTo Folder using Windows Explorer.

2. Right-click an empty space on the window and click on New > Shortcut.

3. In the Create Shortcut window, enter the source of the program or the directory (e.g. C:\My Documents\) in the Command line box.

4. Click Next and Finish to create the shortcut.

You can use the Send To feature not only for copying or moving files, but also for quickly opening files with programs they are not associated with. For example, you could create a shortcut to Notepad and send any ASCII text file (like .HTM files) to Notepad. Similarly, you could use a shortcut to an image viewing program to quickly view images.
