Windows 7: send to folder inaccessible

22 Aug 2014   #1

windows 7 premium home 64bit
send to folder inaccessible

I went to RUN and typed in sendto in order to add a couple of locations (first time I've bothered to do this, or needed to) and it came up with a window stating C:\Users\Keith\SendTo is not accessible Access is denied
I turned on view hidden files and show etc but it did not help. I am administrator; so what's the problem? Anyone know? I'm sure you do.

See if typing in shell:sendto instead will allow you to open it.
