Windows 7: How Can I Add A Hard Drive To The SendTo Menu

How Can I Add A Hard Drive To The SendTo Menu

How can I add an installed HDD to the right-click "SendTo" menu?

On one of my desktops, the SendTo menu (when right clicking on a file or folder) contains all installed drives (plus some other destinations). On my other desktop it only has the C drive (plus some other destinations).

I understand I can add a Folder to that menu by going to the "shell:sendto" command and pasting a folder there (or a shortcut to the folder . . I'm not sure which . . . folder or shortcut to the SendTo folder) but what about a whole HDD drive? Can I right click on the HDD drive in My Computer and copy and paste it in the SendTo folder as if it were a folder? And if so, why does my desktop that does allow SendTo to all drives not have any drive icons showing in its SendTo folder?

Hello poolmon,

You could drag and drop the HDD from "My Computer" into the "SendTo" folder to have a shortcut created for the HDD in SendTo.

Send To Context Menu

You should be able to change the icons of the drives without icons to what you want in SendTo on the other computer.

UEFI hard drive boot order and boot menu are completely ignored
I have a bit of a puzzle, and I don't know whether to blame the motherboard maker, Microsoft, or -- this is a really distant third choice, obviously -- myself. (That being said, UEFIs and GPT drives are new to me, so that distant third choice might not be as distant as I'd hoped.) I recently set...
