Send To Toys – A Great Windows Utility [Freeware]
Send To Toys adds many useful “Send to” locations to your right-click menu & more. It works on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (all versions). It works on all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows computers.
This small Windows utility was first brought to our attention several years ago by a reader who wrote to us and said :
“This is one of those utilities that is hardly known but shouldn’t be. Just right click on a shortcut, file, or folder, and send it where you want it to go. With this program, you can send shortcuts to the quick-launch bar, create shortcuts on the desktop, send data to an application of your choice, and much more. This program blends in so well that it’s easy to forget it’s an installed application and not part of the Windows system itself.”
After reading that we decided to test Send To Toys for ourselves (and for you too) and we agree 100% with his opinion. This is one of the features that should have been built-in to Windows but never was. It integrates perfectly into Windows and you never even know it’s there. Our kind of program – small, quiet and useful.
Well today, the last day of May 2018, Darcy wrote and wondered if this little gem workd in Windows 10… so I downloaded and installed it on my Windows 10 Version 1803 (the most resent version as of this date. And it works PERFECTLY!
Send To Toys allows you to add folder and modify the Send To menu — so if you have a folder you normally save things to, that folder is the default Send To folder.
This is one of those tiny and rare freeware gems that is rewarding for us to present to you. We think you’ll love it; we know you’ll find it very useful.
Rather than extolling its virtues, we’ll bring in the software developer to toot his own horn. Take it away, Mr. Software Developer:
