How to add an item to my "Send To" context menu



Adding an item to the Windows Send To context menu is a relatively easy process that can be done in a few steps. This tutorial will walk you through the process of adding an item to the Send To context menu, so you can quickly send a file or folder to the location of your choice.

First, you need to open the Send To folder, which is located in the Windows user profile folder. To do this, open the Run dialog box by pressing the Win+R keys and type in “%userprofile%\\SendTo”. This will open the Send To folder.

Once in the Send To folder, you can add items to the context menu. To do this, simply copy any shortcut of a file or folder that you want to add. To do this, right-click on the file or folder and select “Create Shortcut”. Once the shortcut is created, then you can simply copy the shortcut to the Send To folder.

Once the shortcut is in the Send To folder, it will appear in the Send To context menu whenever you right-click on a file or folder. You can then quickly send the file or folder to the location of your choice.

It is important to note that the Send To context menu can only accept shortcuts, so you cannot add regular files or folders to the context menu. Additionally, the shortcuts will only appear in the Send To context menu if they are placed in the Send To folder, so the shortcuts will not appear if they are placed anywhere else.

You can also use this method to create a quick access shortcut for a particular application or folder. For example, you can create a shortcut for a particular application or folder and place it in the Send To folder. This will allow you to quickly access the application or folder from the Send To context menu.

Finally, if you want to remove an item from the Send To context menu, simply delete the shortcut from the Send To folder. This will remove the item from the context menu, and it will no longer appear when you right-click on a file or folder.

In conclusion, adding an item to the Send To context menu is a relatively simple process. All you need to do is copy a shortcut to the Send To folder, and the item will appear in the context menu whenever you right-click on a file or folder. Additionally, you can use this method to quickly access an application or folder. Finally, if you want to remove an item from the context menu, you can simply delete the shortcut from the Send To folder.
