Windows 7: R click context menu options

R click context menu options

Hello,
Where / how in the registry can I change/add/delete, especially add & delete to the options made available to me in the "SEND TO" portion of the right-click context menu??? Or, at the very least, where can I locate this in the registry???

Thanks,

Pleides2112

Have a look at this little tool, Send to toys,

It let's you customize the send to context menu.

This is actually one of the easiest things to do. No tools or reg edits. For this first method, you must have hidden folders showing, then navigate to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo (where username is your actual user name)

Or you can type (or copy and paste)

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

In the search box on start menu

That is where all the send to shortcuts are. You can just delete any there to remove them from the context menu. Conversely, you can drag any shortcuts there that you want to add. That's it.

Another neat trick you can do is add a Send to to the Send to folder. Then any time you want to add something as a Send to target, just right click, select Send to then choose Send to as the target. Poof ... it's there. Mine looks like this:

How do you get the "Folder" in the send to menu? That's what I'm looking for - send (move/copy) to any folder.

Dockster, I don't remember doing anything special to have Folder as a Send to target. If I did, I don't remember what it was, sorry. The Copy to/Move to derekimo gave you is similar.
