    Hi Archer , thanks for the reply,but can't seem to get things going.
    I have manged to add "Documents' and 'Winzip' to the list, but when I type in Pictures and one or two others it does not recognise them. As you see by this I am new to pcs as well as Windows 8. not even sure about Bread crumb trail.


    Thanks again.

    Just to say I found an easy way to do this, send item as short cut to Desktop, open Send to file(Which you taught me how to) Then drag and drop in Send to File. Are there any drawbacks to this method?

    Thanks again.

    Another slick way of doing this is to add a shortcut to SendTo in the SendTo folder. Then you can create any shortcut you want on the desktop or in a folder, right click on it an select SendTo then select SendTo as the target.
