    Send To


    Hi Brink, No I can't find anything in the Users\Alister folder that looks like that. Still hope perhaps?

    What do I do? Thanks, Viddy.

    Did you already create another user account to see how it works in it?

    Hi Brink, No I haven't. What exactly do I enter?

    The tutorials below can help show you how to create a new user account, then make it an administrator account.

    Hi Brink, Thanks, I can see how to add to Users, but I don't know what I need to add. You mentioned a shortcut.
    do I copy and paste this, and from where? If it is an address could you please type the required entry.
    Is it just an empty Send To folder? It is an area I have not been before and obviously requires caution.

    Nar, you would just create the new account, then sign in to it to see if "Send to" works in that account versus your other account. That's all.

    Hi Brink, OK now I have it, Create another User account and see what is in that. Done that before,
    thought you meant adding a shortcut to the existing account.

    Thanks for all the help and advice. Regards, Viddy.

    I'm afraid the only thing that I know of left to fix this would be to refresh Windows 8.
