✔ Add Items to the "Send To" Menu in Windows XP

When you right click a file or a folder, you see a 'Send To' menu in the right click menu. This menu makes the task of transferring files from one place to another easy and without opening the destination folder. By using the Send To command, you can quickly send a file to different locations including a floppy disk, your desktop, another person using e-mail, or the My Documents folder. The SendTo folder contains the shortcuts for the destinations that are displayed on the Send To menu. Every user on the computer has a SendTo folder and can customize its contents.

By default, the Send To menu in Windows XP lists the following commands (destinations):
• Compressed (zipped) Folder
• Desktop (create shortcut)
• Mail Recipient
• My Documents
• 3 ½ Floppy (A:)
• DVD/CD-RW Drive (F:)

To add a destination to the Send To menu, you must add a shortcut to the SendTo folder. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type "sendto" (without quots), and then click OK.
3. "SendTo folder" will get execute.
4. Add a destination by doing one of the following:

If u want any folder (eg. "songs") or drive( eg. "Local Disk (D)" ) to be added in
"SendTo menu" then create shortcut of that folder or drive by right clicking on it..
(Folder shortcut will create shortcut thereself only.. & Drive Shortcut will be created shortcut on desktop directly..)
After that Cut & paste that shortcut in to "SendTo folder"


Point to New on the File menu & then click Shortcut ( and put address of the destination ).

Thats it !! it is displayed on the "SendTo menu".

To delete a destination from the "SendTo menu", just delete that shortcut file from the "SendTo folder".
