Send To: Immediately Process Desktop Files

When you right-click a file, a pop-up menu offers a few initial, obvious options to open the item, access properties, delete it, and more. But the Send To choice can actually save you time, even if in small increments.

Sometimes I create an outgoing email message with the right-clicked item as an attachment; just pick Mail recipient. If your PC is capable, the Bluetooth device item begins transmitting a file. And you can customize the menu to send files to specific locations.

Open the Start Menu, click Run. Type "sendto" and click OK. To add a folder directory, drag it into this window with the right mouse button instead of the left. Let go, and choose Create Shortcuts Here.

Now the Send To menu option will include that shortcut. Right click a new file, pick Send To, and click the new destination.
