One of the most potentially useful yet frequently neglected function in Windows is the ‘Send to’ menu. If you don’t use it much, consider this: you could have shortcuts to frequently used folders there that you can use to quickly move files off your desktop and into the appropriate place.
Or you could place shortcuts to programs that you do not use by default to open certain filetypes.
SendToSend to is a free windows extension that makes it easy to add all sorts of items to your send to menu. All you need to do is right click on the item and select the ‘add here’ entry that the program installs in the send to menu.
Some notes on this program:
- Copy vs. move: if you want to move something to a folder in the send-to menu, press shift as you right click the folder. The default (without pressing shift) will simply copy rather than move the item (this is default send to menu behavior, by the way, and not the program’s).
- Adding an item: is done via right clicking ‘add here’. See screenshot above.
The verdit: from the same developer who brought us previously mentioned Filequery, SendToSendTo I a very simple and intuitive program that should be on every computer.
This program is similar to previously mentioned ‘Send to Toys’, but simpler and easier to set up. Highly recommended.
