Add to "Send To" List when Right-Clicking a file

Posted: 06-24-2006, 08:09 PM
Does anyone know how to add to the list of options when you right-click on a
file and select "Send To" ? I installed "Vista" on it's own drive and kept
"XP" on C: Now I want to send files between the two by using the send to
option. You can add to the XP list but I can't find a way to do that with
Vista. Any help would be grateful. Thanks

You just move a shortcut to c:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\SendTo.
BUT, getting past the permissions issue is challenging. I changed permissions
on home personal home computer (on which I am admin) like this:
* Permission is currently set to EVERYONE: Deny.
*When the message comes up that you are denied permission, click the link to
the Security tab
* You can go through all the logical steps to give yourself "Full Control"
but nothing seemed to work for me.
* The only thing I found that really worked is to click EVERYONE...and then
the Remove button.

Ok, I didn't say it was a nice solution, but it is a solution for a beta
system.
Just copy your shortcut then to that SendTo folder and it will be available
to ya.

Or you could just copy your shortcut to
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\SendTo

This is not XP. Things are in different places now.

The sendto group uses the folder C:\Users\<Name>\Sendto
I have not found a way, that I have the rights to see the contents.
But I have found a way to copy a lnk. Here the way:
1. Open Dos/cmd with admin-rights
2. Move with the cd Command to C:\Users\<Name>\Sendto
3. Open File - explorer and copy a link to the folder C:\Users\<Name>. Use
the Keys Control-Shift
4. You can rename the link (right-mouse rename)
5. Now type in the Dos/Cmd - Window copy /L <foldername>.lnk
6. Start now a new file-explorer and test Sendto.

I have test this and it's work, but it's crudy
