Today we are continuing to explore some quick and useful Windows tips.  This time we are looking at the right-click Send-to option in Windows Explorer.

Most Windows users are probably already aware that they can right-click a file in Windows Explorer and get a variety of options.  One of those options in the Send-to feature.  But, many users probably aren’t aware that they can access more than just the options they are used to seeing.  So try right-clicking a file in Windows Explorer and view the options in the Send-to.

Now, try holding down the Shift key while right-clicking on the same file and check the results against those you previously had.  Note that you need to continue holding down the Shift key while you mouse-over the Send-to option.

You will notice a LOT more options available.  Of course, based on what applications are installed on a particular PC, there will be varying items.  You can always add more items to your Send-to menu, but we will cover that another time.
