Windows Xp & Send to

I want to put the printdir.bat program into the 'Send to' context menu. The folder was\ easy to find under W98 but where is it in W XP.

It's a hidden folder in Windows XP, so you need to enable hidden files/folders in your folder options or Windows search (and you) cannot find it to begin with.

Open up your Control Panel, double click on Folder Options then click the View tab. Select the option to "Show hidden files and folders" then click Apply then OK.

Now go into your C: drive, double click the Documents and Settings folder, double click your profile name folder and your Send To folder is in there. On my system, the directory the Send To folder is in, is as follows:

C:\Documents and Settings\Taran

You can add whatever shortcuts you like to it with a simple copy and paste.

Hope this helps.

Hi Taran

Agree with your post but do you not think its easier to just type "sendto" into run

I didn't add my method to contradict yours Chris and yes, your method is easier if all you want to do is open the Send To folder.

However, there are instances where it is handy to know how to enable or disable hidden file/folder view and knowing where the Send To folder is in your directory structure, and how to add shortcuts or programs to it, is equally useful.

Very useful indeed. :o)
