How do I add or remove items in my SendTo shortcut list?

When you right-click a file and choose Send To, you will see various destinations such as the following:

  • Compressed (zipped) Folder

  • Desktop (create shortcut)

  • Mail Recipient

  • My Documents

  • and more....

You can add your own folder shortcut to that location.

Click Start, Run and type shell:sendto This opens the Send To folder. Create a shortcut for your folder there. This can simply be done by right-clicking the folder (which you want to put in SendTo list) and choosing Copy. In the Send To folder, choose Paste Shortcut. The shell:sendto command basically opens the SendTo folder in your user profile.  ( %userprofile%\sendto )
