Trouble using Send to My Pictures

  hatrickj 16:32 25 Mar 2006

I want to send the pics on my cars direct to My pictures but have a problem.

I am using XP Home. If I right click on an icon I get the usual options including “Send to” – My Documents; Mail Recipient etc etc. One option is My Pictures but beside that option, when selected is the note “empty” and I am unable to send files directly to My Pictures. How can I correct or arrange thingsso that I am able to send images on my picture card direct to the My Pictures folder?

I'd send a screen shot were that possible. It might clarify what I'm on about.

Have you moved your My Pictures to a different location, or duplicated it and placed it somewhere else, and it's this other version you use ?

Can't look on mine because I moved it's location to my D drive but the usual links within XP will point to your C drive.

C:\Documents and Settings\Your username\SendTo

Open this folder and check the properties of the shortcut to My Pics. The target may be incorrect.

Location of My Pictures is
C:\ Documents and Settings\My user name\Send to
If I then click on My Pictures in Send to the icon for a file called Desktop.ini is shown.

Ade.h. I have opened folder but can see no ref to a shortcut to My pics there.
