Windows 7: Problem - Win7 64bit Context [Send to]

Problem - Win7 64bit Context [Send to]

I have a brand new, custom built, Win7 64bit rig

Problem:

When I use the context menu [Send to] it ONLY shows [Documents] and all my drives

When I go into my User profile (using SHELL:SENDTO or navigating) my full list IS there.

Is there a way to make Win7 refresh or see my full Sent To list?

Your reference does not apply.

Done that, but does NOT fix. Like I said, the list of programs ARE in my [Send to] folder.

Hello tecknomage, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a test, press and hold the Shift key while right clicking on the item, release Shift, then click on Send to to see if everything is there.

The only thing that does is show my User Start Menu list.

The programs listed my my [Send to] folder are still NOT there.

It just occurred to me.

I check the [Send to] folder for the [Default] User. Sure enough, that is what I'm getting.

In other words I get the [Default] User [Send to] instead of my account's User [Send to].

BUT, copying the contents of my User [Send to] does NOT fix the problem.

Looks like a Registry error, but what and how to fix?

For now, go ahead and post some screenshots showing this to see if they may be able to reveal what may be happening.

Looking at your screenshot, I don't see the full list. Compressed (zipped) folder, Desktop (create shortcut), Fax recipient, and Mail Recipient are missing.
