Make a Shortcut on the Send To Menu

To customize the “Send To” menu in Windows 7 when you right click on an item, you need to add a shortcut to the folder or drive you want to see on the menu to the Send To folder.  To get to this folder, click on the Windows button, type the following in the search:
%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

(%APPDATA% is an environmental variable that should map the to the roaming folder within the current user’s profile folder. For example:  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming)

In the SendTo folder you should see several shortcuts.  Simply add a shortcut to the desired folder or application executable to this folder.

The next time you right click on a file and go to the Send To menu, you should see your new shortcut.
