Windows 7: Problems With Send To Folder

Problems With Send To Folder

I had a major problem with my desktop and had to reload it. I had everything backed up on dvd, so I didn't think it would be a problem. After running my windows 7 disk, and my program disk, I started to load my music, pictures, and videos. I found out how to add a shortcut to the send to menu, (shell:sendto) and was able to drag and drop the my pictures, my videos, and my music shortcuts from the start menu. When my 1st disk came up, I did the select all to send themm all to my pictures. But -- when I clicked on my pictures, they aren't there. Seems they are in a folder at C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo and I don't understand it. How can I put a shortcut on the send to menu that I can access from the start menu, like C\User\My Pictures ???

Hello fsufan,

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to be able to pin the "C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo" folder to your Start Menu for quick access.

Hope this helps,
