Windows 7: Adding "Move To" to the right-click context menu

Adding "Move To" to the right-click context menu

Hello.

I just organized the "Send To" sub-menu found within the right-click context menu. I've found that "Send To" is actually "Copy To". I would like to add a "Move To" option to the menu, but all of the results I find on Google demonstrate how to add a "Move To Folder..." entry that is more of a dialog instead of a sub-menu. Is this at all possible? If not, is it possible to change the command of "Send To" to "Move To"?

Thanks!

Hi Brink! Thank you for the welcome!

I just recently tried your suggestion - however - I used Ultimate Windows Tweaker to add the options instead. It doesn't quite seem to be what I'm looking for though. Selecting the option opens a dialog in which you choose a folder to move/copy the file to. I was aiming more for a sub-menu like the default "Send to" is set up.

Sorry, that's the only option that I know of to add "Move To" to the context menu.

If you hold down the Shift key then right click then use send to, it will move instead of copy.
NOTE, you must hold down the shift key until the item has been moved.

EDIT... Sorry I was wrong with this. You only need to hold down the Shift Key before you click the shortcut under the Send To Menu.
