" Dear Dennis,

When I right click a folder, there are a number of options under the Send To heading. I would like to add some other applications into the Send To area, but am not sure how to do this?

PS: I love your news letter! "

My response:

If you own Windows ME, 2000, or XP, the absolute easiest way to access the SendTo folder for the current user logged in is to:

  1. Click Start -> Run.
  2. Type in "sendto" (no quotes) and press Enter.
  3. An Explorer window will appear; simply drag and drop shortcut icons over and they will appear in the SendTo dialogue menu when you right-click an object.

For Windows 95 and 98, the SendTo folder location is located at C:\Windows\SendTo.

Side note: not all objects (shortcut to programs) will work with SendTo. Only objects that accept some sort of input (such as a shortcut to MS Word, notepad, a folder, or drive letter), will work.
