Chapter 3. Advanced File Management with... > Customizing the Send To Menu

Customizing the Send To Menu

Whenever you right-click a file or folder icon, 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 onto a shortcut. This option enables you to move files around without having to open Explorer windows.

Windows builds the Send To submenu from shortcuts stored in the hidden C:\Windows\SendTo folder. (If you've enabled user profiles, each user who logs in gets a personal SendTo folder as part of his user profile.) When you install Windows Me, the Send To menu includes a relatively small number of destinations: your floppy drive (A:), the Windows desktop, and the My Documents folder, plus a Mail Recipient shortcut that attaches the selected file to a mail message using Outlook Express. Some third-party programs, including Zip compression utilities and Microsoft Outlook, add shortcuts to this list, as does the Windows PowerToys collection.
