Send to Shortcuts Limited to 46 ???

I use Sendto extensively.

I just upgraded from Vista to W7 and while my Sendto Folder has 60 items only the first 46 show up in the Context Menu list.

Anyone got ant ideas on why or how to fix it?

I am still trying to resolve this. Could someone else volunteer to test this on their system to see if they also hit a limit of 46? I have Win 7 Home premium 64 bit. This would tell me if this is a win7 bug or a problem with my setup. I had "Send to Tools" installed but removing it does not solve the problem. The limit is still 46!

A Workaround

I'm still hoping that someone will confirm this limit, but in the meantime I have implemented the following Work around. In fact it is more than a workaround since it allows a long list of sendtos to be broken into manageable pieces, and extended indefinitely.

1. Split the Sendto Directory into 2 parts. Sendto1 and Sendto2.
2. Add a shortcut in each one to a .bat file that will copy the other one to the Sendto directory after erasing Sendto. I named the shortcuts "A Load SendTo1" and "A Load SendTo2" so they will show at the top of the SendTo list.
Here is the bat I use for "A Load Sendto1" in SendTo2 ..just replace "John" with your username, and create a similar one for "A Load Sendto2" in SendTo1.

@echo off
:This Bat is used in SendTo2 to Load the Sendto1 Menu
erase C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo /Q > nul
copy C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo1 C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo > nul

Now SendTo will show this "Load ..." and if you select it the SendTo menu will be changed when you click on SendTo again.

This technique may be extended to Load as many different Sendtos as you wish.
