Dirk,

I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted, but sorry you had to go nuclear.

I only have "add current location to Favorites" when right-clicking the favorites folder...

Is there a fix for this?
I haven't changed anything on the install I'm on (reg settings) but still the only context menu this entry is present for is the parent Folders.

I have my Links folder, which is a sendto item (as is create shortcut{Desktop}), I'm thinking I could combine the two, and that would achieve what "add current location to favorites" does .. but I'f love to know why it's not there!!

Any ideas?

Working (on favorites!)


Everywhere else (I think), extended menu


Weird....

Ah. I'm an idiot. Tip: NEVER try to fix anything without sufficient volumes of caffeine in your bloodstream...

The "add current" works by
a) going to the "target" location
b) right-clicking the fav's icon...
c) Adding shortcut.

Might add a command bar option, or just proceed with the object context (shell/*?) so it's a two-step trip (send-to > favs{shortcut}) ... not as easy as I'd hoped!

Anyone know how to see the innards of the "create shortcut" shortcut (in sendto)?

Need an .lnk editor I think
