    Hi ShovelDriver, I checked this out and found it to be exactly what I was looking for...particularly the 'Folder' option which allows you to copy, move or create a shortcut to any folder on your system....Brilliant...Thank you.

    I seen a post with these directions some months ago and it works well.

    Send To Context Menu

    Start by navigating here: C:\Users\<Your Profile>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\

    Step 1
    1.- After navigating to that Windows folder: Right click on the "SendTo" folder & select "Create shortcut"

    2.- Drag the "SendTo - Shortcut" to the "SendTo" folder

    For any folder to appear in your "SendTo" options-

    Step 2
    a) simply Right click the folder you want to add to your "SendTo" options
    b) select your newly created "SendTo - Shortcut"

    That folder will be in your "SendTo" options next time

    To remove a folder just navigate to C:\Users\<Your Profile>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo and Delete it.

    Hi pcRat, Thanks for your post which is very interesting...
    However, for me the solution provided by shovelDriver was just what I was looking for.

    Thanks
