  1. Adding a Send to Location as a shortcut


    Hello im trying to add a folder in the Send To option in the right click menu as a shortcut similar to the Desktop create shortcut option that's already in the menu. I know how to add a folder to the Send To menu but it makes the folder that I want to send to as a copied folder. I want to make the folder I send to as a shortcut so I can edit what's inside of that folder through the shortcut then delete that shortcut without losing the original folder. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Adding a Send to Location as a shortcut

    Optical Drive Issue

    Hi Jerry, you're welcome.

    Here's mine after I rt clk'd on my Documents Folder like you show in Scrsht 11:

    Adding a Send to Location as a shortcut [​IMG]


    I'd like to wait until you reply to my question in Scrsht 12, if it is a remnant of the process try deleting the one on the dsktp and see if the one in send to also disappears. If it stays in send to, test it, and if you're still having problems I'd suggest you could go back to: Option One: To Add or Remove Items in Send To context menu for Your Account (current user) and do Step 3 to remove it and start over using Step 4 but be very careful of your steps in creating the shortcut and be sure you d&d that shortcut to the send to part of the address.

    I'm busy today and I probably won't be back until the evening.
