How can I add a folder to my Send To List?

Evenin All, (Shows age that)

I have recently bought a Fujitsu Siemens Laptop with Vista Premium Installed.

I have successfully transfered my entire "My Documents Folder" over from my desktop which was XP Home.

Vista's default, in the "SEND TO" drop down menu is something called "Public Documents" among others.

My question is: How can I make the default, or add the "My Documents" folder to this "Send To" drop down list?

I remember I done it when graduating from ME to XP Home but cannot remember how it was done. (It's the age thing!!)

Thanks in Advance for any advice.


hope this helps

Tried that but wouldn't work. Did notice that it was posted early 2006 so can only think that it doesn't work with Vista

Still open to suggestions or advice from anyone.

I don't use Vista (yet) but I would try creating a short cut on the desktop to My Documents (you may alraedy have one - create a second one)and then click Start > Run > type in sendto and OK. This will open your Send To folder - drag the shortcut you made into the folder, and it should then be on your send to menu

Had the same response as your previous post, even ticking show hidden folders.

The SendTo menu is not accessible by the above method in Vista, but something similar ought to work;

Start menu/run, type


press return

If you get a new Explorer window, navigate to Roaming/Microsoft/Windows/SendTo and put your new folder there.

This on Vista with UAC disabled, running as a Standard user.

Put your folder shortcut there, not folder

Try this Follow the path in the above link, C:\Users\[LogonId]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo right click in the Send to folder choose create new Folder Name it what you want. You can then choose this folder when you right click to send to

That never worked either.

Turned off UAC Had a Roaming folder but no send to Item in there.

Strange, hidden and system files are not shown on my system but I still see the folders in appdata.
You do have a couple more folders to go into before you see it.
