SendTo folder?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by Nigel Molesworth, Nov 29, 2007.

  1. Where has the SendTo folder gone?

    I want to add a shortcut to NotePad, and remove some of the stuff I don't want
    in there.

    Nigel - I have the same problem - it is something I have used constantly in
    XP - but seemingly it is not included in Vista - extraordinary!

    Dave, can you give me the procedure for adding items to the SendTo?

    Just drag shortcuts to the SendTo folder.

    \AppData is normally hidden, so you will have to change the folder view to
    show hidden files & folders

    That simple? Thanks.

  8. How very odd! I'd located this folder, and dropped a shortcut into it (via
    Desktop), but it didn't work. I just did it again directly, and it now
    works! Thank you.

    However, there is still a lot of stuff on the SendTo menu that is not in
    this folder; all the drives. Any idea where these are in the registry?

    Drives in the Sendto folder are a function of the registry. To remove
    those, you can download nodrivesinsendto.reg, found here:

  10. That's interesting, but what if I want some of the drives?

    Simply create a new shortcut and show the target location as the drive
    letter. Location = C:, D:, etc. Place the shortcut in the SendTo folder.
