Add more locations to the ‘Send to’ menu of Windows

There comes a time in everybody’s life, when we want to organize the files scattered here and there on our system, and relocate them to the relevant folders. Especially the people who are much into downloading several types have to face this pretty often. Now, this process of organizing the files in respective folder could be a real pain for the reason that you need to copy or move files in multiple locations, clicking the files to select, then ‘Cut’ or ‘Copy’ and finally pasting them to specific location is quite a time taking process, and boring as well. Here is a way which can ease this process by allowing you to add more locations under the ‘Send to’ menu of your Windows System.

We all are aware of the ‘Send to’ menu, which can be accessed by right clicking on a file or a folder. ‘Send to’ comes with several locations preloaded, as shown in the snapshot below –

Let us first understand, how is this small utility named as ‘Sendtosendto’ can be useful for you. The scenario about which I talked in the previous section, i.e. organizing the files by relocating them to different folders can be a tedious job. Let’s say there are 3 folders in which we want to send the files from our folder named as ‘Downloads’, now ‘Downloads’ has some files which are to be kept in say ‘Folder 1’, couple of them are to be kept in ‘Folder 2’ and so on.

Now, suppose if by some means, we can add the ‘Folder1’ in the list of ‘Send to’ menu as shown above, wouldn’t it be easy enough to select the files in ‘Downloads’ folder and then we can use the ‘Send to’ to copy the files to ‘Folder1’? This is what this little utility does.

Simply download the setup file, run the executable file to install Sendtosendto on your system. Now whenever you make a right-click on a Folder, and take your mouse cursor on the ‘Send to’ option and you will see a ‘Add here’ option, click on it, and add the folder to ‘Send to’ menu, now you can easily copy (just like the ‘Send to’ option, this too copies the file, and doesn’t move the file) the file to this folder just by using a right-click.

Now here, as shown in the snapshot above, we are adding the folder named as ‘Chrome Games’ to the ‘Send to’ menu. There is another folder named as ‘Mem Crd’, now let us have a look at the scenario when we right-click on the ‘Mem Crd’ folder.

Now, we can easily copy any file or folder to ‘Chrome Games’ folder directly, this definitely simplifies the process, isn’t it?

In Windows 7, there is already a way to enhance this list of location available under the ‘Send to’ menu using the ‘Shift’ key (read this post for better understanding), also we have covered certain other tools and methodologies, like the Sendto Toys which is an enhanced software on same lines as that of Sendtosendo, also you can try out this manual method of adding more locations to the ‘Send to’ option.

Some people want the ‘Send to’ option to act differently, and that is, instead of copying people want the ‘Send to’ to move the files to certain location, if you too think so, here is a hack to get the move functionality instead of just copying.

So, go ahead and try any of these methods or apps, and do share your views with us.
