Most of us have learned how handy the “Send to” menu is in Windows. It’s been a feature of Windows since Windows 98. It’s gotten better over the years, and it’s one of our favorite right-click features. We use it all the time to send files by email. It’s easier than attaching a file and/or messing around dragging the file to an email. We just right-click a file, choose “Send to” and then “Mail recipient”. An email compose window appears with the file attached. All we have to do then is just add the recipient’s address, type in a few lines of text (or not) and send. You can also write files to CD or DVD using the “Send to” – as well as many other things.
Windows 7 has even more great “Send to” features, including allowing you to display an expanded “Send to” menu that includes all the folders in your user profile along with other items not normally included in the “Send to” dialog. You can access an expanded “Send to” menu in Windows 7 simply by holding down the Shift key and when you choose the “Send to” option from the right-click menu.
