SendTo shortcuts


Mark Hammer

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.


My value in that key is:


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.
