Thanks for all the input. I am working on a laptop without a mouse (touchpad only) and want to do this WITHOUT HOLDING SHIFT. I run out of fingers Anything??? Edit the shortcut itself???

I think I am going to post this in a progaming forum as I have come to realize that my unique desires expressed above are not a Windows feature. I will keep working on this myself but if anyone has more to say please add. I will post my solution WHEN I figure this out.
This can be done!!

I already had the copy to... and move to... options in the context menu. I found it very "busy" I wanted a few send to links to a few folders and libraries that MOVE. I have found this by google search "sendtotoys" It has a send to FOLDER which acts like your copy to/move to function only has a few more settings. I like open in user specified folder (no more browsing) and set default to MOVE, COPY or CREATE SHORTCUT. Thanks everyone I am happy with the results

EDIT- I have had time to use this and it suits my need perfectly. I have made different copies of their send to Folders menu then set each to open in the folder i designate. Very easy through the settings. Now I can right click > send to > pictures left click ok Two clicks. I like it

ANOTHER EDIT- I just put this in my Minecraft Saves folder Called it Copy to Backup. Set it up. And I can drag one or more world folders onto it. Vice Versa in backup folder. Copy to Saves.

FINAL EDIT - Settings stay with the program not with each copy of it I made so now all of them want to Copy to Saves. Oh well Back to the drawing board. Still a good tool to move to ONE obscure dir quickly.

McP2143 - Good luck with your search. What you really want is a MoveTo folder next to the SendTo folder that you can pop your shortcuts in and out from. I fear this would need a rewrite of shell32.dll and other system bits, so isn't likely to be done.

For myself, I almost always copy rather than move. For my regular destinations, I can put a shortcut in SendTo. What you could do instead that is also easy is use the navigation pane Favorites section to pop shortcuts into as needed and just drag files to the shortcuts and select Move. It really isn't much extra bother, and you don't need to use the keyboard at all.

It would just add one extra step to the process if you placed shortcuts to the destinations you want in the Sendto folder, then right click on the file, choose 'Send To' the desired location, then delete the file. Over simplification?

That said, I'd rather copy & delete than move the file, as if the move process corrupts the file, you can recopy.

Thanks again everyone!! I am going to stick to copy & delete because while it may take a bit extra time it is a safer route as James reminded me.
On a side note I have managed to mess up that send to toys Folder program. I wanted to read it in notepad and forgot to uncheck the "always use selected program" box. Now it won't work. I will post this in a new thread and put a link to it here later.

No need for that. Just right click on the file, choose 'Open with..." and change the association (which would be the executable program file for the Sendto toys), making sure that the 'Always use this program' option is checked.

James the default was to open with (Blank) Nothing. I can't figure out how to get back to this. If i leave the field blank my OK button fades and it won't let me apply that.

Edit - Just fixed that by searching this very forum!! Props to Brink. Unassoc http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91...tion-type.html
