    I understand that the "SendTo" folder for a user has been moved from
    Documents and Settings to Users\.\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

    However, the shortcuts I place in this folder do not show up in my
    right-click menu when I right-click on a file icon. System restart does not

    The location of the Send To folder with my shortcuts is:


    I have shortcuts there to Notepad, Word, and Access.

    What does it take to get these to show up in the right-click menu?

    In the Registry Editor, in the following key,

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To

    check to see, in the right pane, if Value Name (default) has
    {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837} as its Value Data.

    Hi Mark--

    If I want a shortcut in any Windows I usually just drag the icon off the
    upper left corner of a window in XP, and out of the address bar in Vista for
    an IE Window or off the upper left of the name bar for an explorer folder.
    If you want to add an item to the Send to context menu:!E8E5CC039D51E3DB!15739.entry

    Same as your question. What does that mean?

    Thanks, CH.

    I downloaded and ran the fixsendto.vbs script, but it has not helped.

    What is showing up in my SendTo menu is all the drives, A, C, DVD, +
    mapped drives, on my Vista machine. Nothing from my own SendTo folder
    shows up.
