Adding an item to the 'send to' list in Explorer

  Mr. Chips 15:52 06 May 2003

I have Windows XP home

When using Explorer, I highlight a file in the right pane.
I right-click and get a drop down option list.
When clicking on 'send to ...' I would like to add an option here to send the file to another folder, on another networked computer.

How do I do this please?

Find Send To folder in Windows and add shortcut.

make a shortcut to the folder you would like to send it to, to do that right click on the folder and select "Create Shortcut"

Now go to start>run and type sendto, not the send to box will pop up

Now cut and paste the shortcut folder into "sendto" folder and thats it

p.s. you can rename the shortcut.

i.e. if the folder was called "work documents" then windows would have renamed it "shortcut to work documents"

Just rename it when you have cut and pasted it into the "sendto" folder

A nice little utility called SendToToys will do exactly what you want. Off a right click you can send the file to any folder that you can browse to.
