Windows 7: Windows Explorer SendTO Limit?

Windows Explorer SendTO Limit?

I have 53 entries in my SendTO folder. When I want to send a file to this folder, not all of the entries are displayed. Is there a way to "scroll" to the end of the list?

Context menus are not designed to scroll, unfortunately.

Shift + Right Click shows more folders, but i don't think that is what your looking for

One thing you can do to reduce the number of entries in the SendTo menu, allowing more space for the entries you want is to remove all of the HD entries (i.e., C:\, Floppy A:\, DVD drive, etc.). This is especially helpful, if, like me, you have many partitions on a given machine (I have 14). This requires a registry edit. As always, back up your registry before making changes:

1. press the winkey, type 'regedit' (minus quotes) and press enter
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
3. Right click on the Explorer folder---------------------------------------------------------------------^
4. Choose: New>DWORD (32 bit) Value
5. Name the value NoDrivesInSendToMenu
6. Double click on the entry--^
7. Enter 1 in the Value data field
8. Click OK, close Regedit, restart or log out and back in

The drives should now be gone from the send to menu. If you only have a few partitions and optical drives, it will still help free up a few spaces.

Edit: I could have saved myself a lot of trouble if I had merely checked the Tutorial index first!

Thanks to all that replied. It looks like I'll have to wait until you can scroll in a context window. I am OCD when it comes to backing up a file immediately.

If you use a [free] service like Dropbox or Box.net, that might alleviate that OCD.
