Windows 7: Send to menu

Send to menu

How can I add a program to the "Send To" menu accessed by right clicking a file name. Send To is a hidden file and whatever I try I get a message "Access Denied". I am the administrator. I have tried accessing the file, dropping a shortcut into it, and tried to get higher access permission, all without success. I an using W7 (x64).

Hello Tenbear, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, this tutorial may be able to help you with this. It's for Vista, but it's the same procedure in Windows 7.

Send To Context Menu - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn

In addition, once you are in the sendto folder, you can sort the entries. The sequence of the entries in the sendto folder will be the sequence in you right click context menu.
I found that to be handy when I added an ATEMP folder to the sendto. I use that folder a lot for e.g picture editing and it is handy to have it first on the list if you use it all the time - less navigation.

Send To menu? Adding destinations?
In XP, I can add destinations to the right-click > Send To menu, by adding shortcuts to programs to the C:\Documents and Settings\DarkStar\SendTo folder. I've added Notepad and MS Paint there. Can I do something similar in Windows 7?
