Windows 7: I want to make a send to option that will MOVE to specified library

I want to make a send to option that will MOVE to specified library

So i am sorta new, but not stupid
I read a few posts and managed to find the send to folder. I then put a shortcut to Pictures (the default library) in the send to folder but when I use it, it copies there. I want it to MOVE the files there. I know I can just select Move to but then I have to select the folder. tedious. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Ps. Don't mention the shift key as I hate all keyboards!

This may be of use:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Just to be clear, the Libraries are basically a 'shortcut' to the specified folder. I.E., My Pictures, so you will never have a file only in the Pictures Library, it will also be (by necessity) in the My Pictures folder.

Send to .. always copies. That is all you get. Else you have to use what James suggested.

Thanks for the quick replys
I am thinking more along the lines of changing what the one specific shortcut does when activated. Then placing this "special shortcut" in the send to folder. Still not possible? Maybe make it a shortcut to a .bat that does this??

This might interest you:

To Move a file using Send To:

1. Hold down your SHIFT key
2. Tap your CTRL Key once (don't let go of SHIFT)
3. Right click on your item and select a send to option (don' let go of SHIFT until you're done).

@debugged - that works for me without having to tap the CTRL key.

for me the secret is to have the shift key held down all the time.

a few weeks ago i had a discussion with another forum member, and he claimed it didn't work for him at all.

i'm still wondering why.

You're right, I also don't need to tap Ctrl to get it to move - I'm more used to sending shortcuts, and for that you have to hold Alt and tap Ctrl before right-click > Send to.

It's not a claim, it's a fact

Which is why Brink created this - Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder

Edit - this worked.....

maybe it's something i tweaked long ago and forgotten about, but on my machine:

in windows explorer:
  1. hold down shift key - and don't let go until i say so!

  2. right-click on file or folder

  3. send to > (shift key still pressed down)

  4. select destination (shift key still pressed down)

  5. watch that sucker disappear from current folder, and reappear (move or shift) to desired location.

  6. now you can let go of shift!
Possible to create a "Move To" Option?

Once I did the tap CTRL it worked! (for me)

The link James provided works as well, and it's what I used.
