Windows 7: Possible to create a "Move To" Option?

Possible to create a "Move To" Option?

OK I know about "Send To" option where you send a copy of an item to it. The problem is just that, it's a copy; the original item stays in place.

Id like to know if its possible to create a "Move To" option where the items are actually moved instead of copied. I know about the Move To/Copy To folder options in Windows Explorer.

Can I create a "Move To" option similar to the Send To where I just right click and do a Move To?

Thanks

hang about, rereading your post, you say you know about 'move to/copy to' in explorer, so i'm a bit confused now.

Actually what you linked to works like a charm. It's exactly (well it could allow for predesignated folders ) what I'm looking for

Thanks +1

*update* if you hold down 'shift' while right-clicking and sending, that should move it - and give you your pre-designated folders and your own send'to locations.

===================================

thanks for the gold pip!

Yeah I wanted a right click option and your link provided that.

Would be nice if it had the option to pre-designate folders, but it does what I want.... a right click.

Thanks.

I know about the holding down the shift and right clicking the item but it doen't "Move" it, it just copies it to the folder. I wanted somthing to actually "Move" the file.

Hello Drew,

When you click on the Move To folder context menu item from the link below, it will give you a dialog box to select where to move the file to instead of a expandable menu in the context menu.

Yeah I got that. I just like how it's set up with Send To where there are Pre-designated folders/drives



It's all good though as the basic right click issue was solved. So now I just right click and choose where I want to file to go. The other thing that helps is that the last location chosen is remembered so you don't have to hunt each and every time

Anyways I'm good now.

Thanks
