    Do you find yourself working frequently with a particular folder but it is not included in the ?Send To? menu. Here is a way to add a shortcut to a folder of your choosing:

    Firstly, as the ?Send To? folder is hidden by default, we will need to make it visible: Got to Start\Control Panel\Folder Options. Open the View tab and scroll down to ?Hidden files and folders?. Select the option to ?Show hidden files and folders? then click on Apply, OK.

    Okay, now we can proceed.

    For XP:

    1)  Go to Start\My Computer and double click on the ?C? drive icon.
    2)  Open (double click on) the ?Documents and Settings? Folder and then open your username folder.
    3)  Open the ?Send To? folder, click on File and select New then Shortcut.
    4)  Follow the Shortcut Wizard; use the Browse button to navigate to the location of the folder you wish to add, highlight it (left click once) and click Next then Finish.

    For Vista:

    The procedure is identical for Vista users except; substitute ?Users? for ?Documents and Settings?. Plus the location of the ?Send To? folder is completely different. If you try to use the shortcut in C:\Users\ you will get an error message. This is the correct location you will need to navigate to:
    C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows. Then follow steps 3 and 4.

    When you have finished you will be able to right click on a file, choose ?Send To?, and a shortcut to the folder you added will be included in the sub-menu.
