    Cgelic,

    It's there. C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo is a hidden system file. You will just need to unhide system files before you will see it.

    Hey,
    first of all, i'm loving all of these tweeks of yours (most of them i'm not too worried about but some, like this one, are exactly what I like to see). But I do have a suggestion for you. You always say to click the download button and save the .zip and so on and so forth. With all that you have to do, would it just be easier to click "open with" instead of "save"? The default for .zip files is Windows Explorer.

    All you have to do is click "open with" and then "ok" and the .zip folder will open up. Then double-click the .reg file and you're good to go (after approving the change in the pop-up window that appears). It's easier, quicker, and doesn't put anything on your desktop that you'll have to go back and delete later (especially since people generally forget to empty their recycle bin not realizing that while trying to clean up their system that those files still take up space). Although I guess some people like to save these things for future reference, which then I can understand wanting to save it.

    I realize you probably won't change these directions since you have so many posts and some people might want to keep the files, but just thought i'd mention it for future reference.

    Hello Matrix, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    I'm not sure what you mean. When you click on the Download button, you usually only have the Find, Save, and Cancel options available.

    Hm...I guess that would explain it, then, lol. I've attached thumbnails of what I see when I click "Download" I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate (not sure of the build number). I've put everything in order of how it pops up. I just click Download, Open With Windows Explorer, click on the .reg file, then click Yes and OK. I should add that i've always had this "Open With..." option...even in XP. Maybe i'm just special, lol.

    LOL, could be.

    Try the ZIP download in the tutorial below to restore all of the default associations for ZIP to see if that may help.

    Many thanks Brink,
    I finally upgraded from Windows 7 RC - and was wondering why the "move to and copy to" commands were playing hide and seek
    Always good to check out this forum and especially your little tutorials.

    Thanks again

    Hi

    As it seems that you knows everything maybe you can help with this.

    What I would really like is some kind of Copy / Move To menu within the Context Menu. Something like this (pardon my mock-up):



    The standard Copy / Move To only remembers the last location a folder was copied / sent to. My example would perhaps have 2 or 3 pre-defined folders or remembers the last 2 or 3 folders.

    Would something like this be possible, or do you know of any application that can do this?

    Many thanks for your knowledge and excellent forums
