Missing Send to DVD or CD when you right click – while you’re fixing this, add SkyDrive to right click

Recently my doc lost the right click send to  CD/DVD option.  Here’s my fix.    Open Computer right-click on your CD/DVD and create shortcut.

This will put a shortcut icon on your desktop.

Click the Windows Orb and type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

This will bring up the SendTo folder.

Right click on the shortcut you created on the desktop and select ‘Cut’.   Paste the shortcut into the SendTo folder and rename it if necessary.

We recently featured Microsoft’s SkyDrive in an article giving Microsoft credit for both giving end-users cloud storage and for their slick application.   The app adds a SkyDrive shortcut in Windows Explorer to your computer.  You can copy the SkyDrive ‘shortcut’ and paste it into your SendTo folder, giving you the option to right click and send ‘whatever’ up to your SkyDrive.
