    I have looked around and cannot find anything about this anywhere. When I
    right click and go to the send to option I have way too many options. I can
    send to all of my personal folders and drives, but in the send to folder none
    of these things are listed. Also, the personal folders are listed twice. How
    do I get rid of all this?

    You can type shell:sendto directly into the start/search box. Hit enter and
    it should take you to here:
    C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

    Do the extra entries show up there?

    the shell:sendto command won't work. It tells me access is denied. So I typed
    in the whole address and got to the sendto folder. All I have in there is:
    Compressed (zipped) folder, desktop (create shortcut), documents, and mail
    recipient.

    Apparently C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo, the
    default location, is no longer where the registry has a path to your SendTo
    folder. Are you aware of ever having moved it? What addresses, in the
    Registry, are shown for SendTo in these two keys?

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
    Folders
    and
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
    Shell Folders

    In the first key, the address, under Data, will be written something like
    this:
    C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

    In the second key, the address, under Data, will be written something like
    this:
    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

    I looked up both keys and the second one was wrong so I changed it. Now I
    have the shortcuts that I am supposed to (compressed folder, mail recipient,
    etc) in addition to ALL the other crap.

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

    How to hide drive-letters from the Send To menu in Windows Vista, by Ramesh
    Srinivasan:

    All the other entries you can hide or delete, by going to the
    C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo folder.
