    Sendto discrepancies


    Hi,

    I noticed some discrepancies with Sendto:-

    When I Right click on an icon & select Sendto the MS Photo Editor does not show up although I put it there in "...Roaming.....Windows Sendto"

    Also I deleted "Floppy drive A" in "...Roaming.....Windows Sendto" but, it still shows when I Right click on an icon & select Sendto.

    Can any one explain & correct this? .........thanx ........nick

    If that is MS Office Photo Editor, I was of the impression it was replaced by Microsoft Office Picture Manager.
    Maybe the shortcut is a dead link.

    Thanx,

    Yes it is MS Office (old 2000) Photo Editor & I use it all the time with a shortcut I put in the taskbar.

    I'll look for the Microsoft Office Picture Manager. ......nick

    Are either of those applications working executable programs?
    If so, you could create an 'Open with...' context menu entry.

    Here's a quick video of the process which should work for you if you're comfortable working with the Windows Registry.

    I ALWAYS ADVISE TO BACKUP THE REGISTRY AND/OR CREATE A RESTORE POINT BEFORE PERFORMING ANY TWEAKS!

    Create Right Click 'Open with' Entry - Edwin000's library
