Windows 7: Send to almost empty

Send to almost empty

Hi, my sendto menu is almost empty! I can't remember anything i did to mess it up. I tried to create another system account, but the sendto is ok with this new account.

Check my settings...




I searched for the location of "Desktop (create shortcut)" and found the following

Code:
C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
C:\Users\Koyfo\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-sendmail_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_b6de6c0835b43484

Hello Koyfo,

This may be able to help you restore the missing "Send To" context menu items in that user account.

Send To Context Menu - Remove or Restore Default Items

Hope this helps,

Hello my friend. Tkanks for the fast reply.

Already tried this. Even in every one of the 5 folders i tried to enter a new shortcut to chechk if it will show up in the sento context menu but it didn't work.
I tried also the function of windows 7 manager under Repair Center -> Context Menu -> Restore all system entries in [Send To] Context Menu but also it didn't work...

Seems a bit premature. You could check System Restore to see if you have any restore points pre-dating the issue.

I have disabled system restore


I extracted some registry keys from my clean install, but i couldn't apply some of them that include "M i c r o s o f t S e n d T o S e r v i c e"

I got error



Problem not yet fixed. Any other ideas about other reg keys?

Have you run SFC?

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Edit: Also, you should re-enable System Restore. It will get you out of messes like this. Also wisdom: find an imaging program and start using it. I have 3 rotating images that can be restored in 20 minutes if things go awry. SR and imaging used together gives you ironclad protection.

Koyfo,

Since it works fine in the new account, you might consider to just use the new account or create another new one to use instead. After copying what you want from the old account to the new one, you could delete the old account.

This would probably be less problematic and faster to do.

Thanks for the help, but i just noticed something else.
When i made the new account, i didn't try to enter new shortcuts in sendto folder rather than seeing that the default (send to zip, mail, etc) exist properly, now i tried to enter new shortcuts and they didn't display in the sendto menu!
Only the default (zip, desktop, mail etc) work, as you saw in the video (moving the desklink).

Any other ideas?!


PS: Sfc 30%, will edit when ready

Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Koyfo>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
