Chapter 7. Advanced File Management Techniques > Customizing the Send To Menu

Customizing the Send To Menu

Whenever you right-click on a file or folder, one of the choices on the shortcut menu is Send To. Selecting this option opens a submenu containing destinations to which you can send the selected icon with one click. The result is the same as if you had selected the file and dropped it directly on a shortcut. This option enables you to move files around without having to open Explorer windows.

All the entries on the Send To submenu are shortcuts stored in the \windows\profiles\username\sendto folder. When you install Windows 98, the Send To menu includes a relatively small number of destinations: your default floppy drive, the Windows desktop, and the My Documents folder. Programs like Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Fax, and the Web Publishing Wizard add shortcuts to this list, as does the Windows PowerToys collection.
