Adding scanned files to "send to"

Have just bought a Skypix handyscanner, which is great to use. I'm using FreeOCR with it. How can I arrange to send scans directly to this soft-ware please.

Copy (do not cut) the shortcut from the Start Menu or the Desktop to this folder:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo\

Then right click on a scanned file...
...select "Send to" from the context menu
...select the FreeOCR shortcut from the sub-menu

BTW, you can rename the shortcut to simply FreeOCR (if desired).

The method mentioned above does not work for all apps.
