Hello Shawn.


I just wondered because I have this tutorial linked in a couple tutorials, so I'll have to look at my wording in them to see if it's still appropriate.

I personally use both all the time.



Thanks mate!

Shawn, Howdy. Am a newbie to the forum. Just came across your excellent tutorial on adding the Copy to and Move To Folder in the context menu. I applied the two reg entries and I now have the Copy to and Move to entries when I right click on a file or folder. What I am not seeing is the "Edit" tab on the menu bar. The Copy to and move to function works perfectly. I just don't see the "Edit" tab like in your screenshot.

Hello Aviator,

Do you have the menu bar turned on in Windows Explorer?

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Well, I am still confused. I still have those two icons on my desktop. When I copied the "move to folder" it too is on my desktop. Can't I get all three of them off. I know I have had these kinds of icons and words on my desktop before and I don't know what I did with them. But I would need to rename them no matter where they go so I know what installation they are for?

Hello Patti,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "those icons on my desktop"??

Could you give some more details and screenshots of what you mean?

I just suggested this as an easy way to move things around in your other thread.

If you want to just delete them you can do that, they are just installers for SP1

and Office. Have you tried to delete them via the right click context menu?

This reg file just adds 2 options to your right click context menu so when you

right click on a file or folder, you can choose to copy or move it to a specified

location. If you merged the .reg file already you can delete that too.

Hi Shawn,

This is her other thread,

where do I put these

Ah, ok. Thank you Derek.

Patti,

This should really be posted in your original thread on this instead so that it could all be kept together.
