Add a program to Send To context in Windows 8

Add a program to Send To context in Windows 8

With the move to Windows 7 and Windows 8, there are a number of new locations for folders that were very helpful and well known to support techs and SysAdmins. The Send To folder (where you could control what shows up in Explorer when you right clicked on an item and selected Send To) was one of these.

Unfortunately, for many, the location of this file is a mystery… Until now.

HowToGeek.com shows how to do this in two different ways.

One way is to run the following in a command window or Run box (WinKey + R):
shell:sendto

Simple and elegant, this should find the correct folder for the currently logged in user.

Alternatively, in a command window or Run box (WinKey + R) you can enter the following:
%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

Just in case you needed to know…

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
