Secret Items on the Windows 7 Send To Menu

Post by arifur »

While poking around in Windows 7, I discovered extra context menu items using the same Shift + Right-click trick we used to open a command prompt from the desktop menu, and we’ve got big colorful screenshots to show you today.

Viewing the Secret Items

These are the default items that you should see on the Send To menu when you right-click on a file:

Hold down the Shift key while right-clicking on the icon, and then try the Send To menu… all sorts of extra options!

If you want any of those to show up normally without holding down the Shift key, you can create shortcuts in the Send To folder. Just type the following into the location bar:

Code: Select all

shell:sendto
And then drag shortcuts to your preferred folders into this folder.
