Customizing Your Windows Send-To Menu

ST1On a Windows PC, right-clicking on a file or folder usually display a context menu where you can select what option to use in managing selected files. Options like Compressed (zipped) folder and Desktop (create shortcut) are usually available by default.

To add more menu options to the context menus:

For a Windows 7 or Vista PC, type the following into your file explorer address bar:

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

It would open a folder containing shortcuts of applications already listed in the “Send-to” context menu. Create and drop shortcuts of applications you wish to add.

For a Windows 8 PC, open the Run dialog box by pressing Win+R, then paste this command into the text box:

shell:sendto

This will also open the folder where all the context menu shortcuts are. Alternatively, you can navigate to

%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

Create a shortcut in this folder for the item you want in the Send To menu, and you’re ready to go.
