    I don't know whether your setup would be possible. But what you could do is use "send to" a number of predefined folders. All you have to do is to include shortcuts of the desired folders into the "Send to" folder.

    Place shortcuts of the desired folders on the desktop, then type shell:sendto into the Start/search, hit Enter and drag your shortcuts into the sento folder. Close the send to folder. Now, whenever you go to "Send to" in the context menu, your folders will be one of the pop-up options.

    Note: Send to equals a copy, not a move.

    Thanks! I never thought of Send To. Ideally I would like a move instead of copy, as it would save another operation to delete the original / copied file.

    Once there create new\key call it MOVE TO, after this new key is created move to right pane, and modify the default key to

    COPY TO same set up, except the default key should read

    This will give you much more function in your right click context menu.

    This tutorial already adds both a Copy to Folder and Move to Folder context menu option.

    For some reason when I right click and select "Merge" (which is at the top of the menu, in bold), all it does is open up a notepad. When I right clicked the .reg file it says .reg files open up with notepad. Is there something configured wrong on my PC or something I need to do differently?

    Hello Hot97EclipseGSX, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You're default associations for .reg file extensions is incorrect. In Default Programs, double check to make sure that the .reg file extension is set to have it's "Current Default" program open with Registry Editor (C:\Windows\regedit.exe).

    Afterwards, see if you are able to merge the REG file.

    Hope this helps,

    You were correct. I figured it opened with the wrong file. I honestly have no idea how .reg files became associated with Notepad. I didn't get the option for "merge", but I did get the option of "open", which worked just fine.

    Thanks for the welcome to the forums. I hope to learn a lot here! :)

    You're most welcome. :)

    It may have happened by mistake if you right clicked on a .reg file and clicked on "Open with", then selected Notepad.
