Take Control of your Send-to Menu

The Send-to Menu is what you see when you right-click a file or folder and choose “Send to:”

You can take control of your  send to menu, and it’s really easy to do.

We’re going to show you how to add or remove things from your Send-to menu.

Press the Windows Key + E to open File Explorer. At the top in the address bar paste the following:

shell:sendto

And press Enter. You will see that File Explorer opens C: \Users\Your User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo .

Look at the screenshot below and you’ll see a list of things that you’ll see when you right-click something and choose “Send to”. You can add something to this list or remove something from this list.

I don’t need Fax recipient on my Sendto list so I just right-click on it and delete it (these are all shortcuts so you’re not actually removing any programs or important files).

I like to use a program called MetaPad to open text files and other files – but it’s not on this list. So, I dragged a shortcut to MetaPad on my desktop and copied it to Sendto folder. And now when I choose Send to, I have the option to send it to MetaPad. Also, since I deleted “Fax recipient”, from the Send to folder above, it no longer appears as a choice when I choose “Send to”. See the screenshot below.

You can drag any shortcut into the Sendto folder. You could just drag any shortcut into this folder, or create a new shortcut.

Or if all that seems like a trifle too much aggravation, you can download a freeware program called “Sendto Toys” which makes it a snap to add to, remove from and modify your Sendto menu. You can read more about Sendto Toys here.
