Good deal . There is indeed a wealth of information in the SF Tutorials (and also in the threads...).

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I wanted to post some screenshots for anyone interested in the send to toys

Here is the configuration menu. You can easily add and remove folders from your send to menu. (sends copies & shortcuts only)I want to make a send to option that will MOVE to specified library-send-toys-configure.jpg

Win7 Pro x64

Bit of an old thread, just wanted to post how I resolved it in the end:

Create a new empty batch file, e.g. "moveto-pics.bat"
Edit the batch file, adding the text move %1 "C:\Users\yourname\Pictures\"
Move the new batch file to the SendTo menu

The part between quotation marks needs to be the exact name of the folder where you want to move files. The %1 will automatically get replaced by the filename of the selected file.

If you now right click on any file, and choose 'SendTo > moveto-pics.bat', the selected file will be moved. Only drawback: a cmd window will quickly flash. Good enough for me.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Joe6g really good help, thanks for that man, I needed something like that too. But there's one small problem, with that bat file it's possible only to move plain files, to exact folder. Is there any way to create the batch file which could be able to move folder with its contents to another folder?

I realize this is an old and dusty thread, but I just registered on the site to say, "Thanks!" to both Debugged and the OP. This shortcut (not including the CTRL option as it doesn't seem to work for me (Windows 10 64bit)) is amazing! It adds a plethora more locations to choose from. I'm an avid shortcut user & I can't believe I never ran across it. So thanks again! Again, it doesn't 'move' the item, but did vastly expand my available copyto: locations.
