Windows 7: Move To/Copy To

WindowsI just can’t stop thinking about it.

Here’s an itty-bitty partial alternative for the loss of the Move To/Copy To icons in Windows 7.

You can add items to the SendTo menu instead. Make shortcuts for your most often used folders and put them in the SendTo folder.

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

If you need a quicker way to navigate there, go to the Search box under the Start button and type in “shell:sendto” without the quotes.

In Windows XP, you can navigate to the SendTo folder using the same “shell:sendto” command in the Run box.

Another option for this can be found in TuneUp Utilities. Since I use it anyway there’s an option under ‘Customize Windows’ that allows me to add ‘Move To folder’ and ‘Copy to folder’ to the context menu.

Now wherever I go and right-click on a file, it’s available in the menu.
