Add Shortcut to the Sendto Menu

When you right click a file, folder or program in Windows you will see the send to menu. Sendto is actually a folder on your computer. Some of the options you will see in the send to menu are compressed (zipped) folder, desktop (create shortcut), documents, mail recipient and other drives installed on your computer. Some programs you install also add items to the send to menu. You can add additional shortcuts to the send to menu for items you use often.

Add a Shortcut to the Sendto Menu
1) In Windows XP Click start > run. In the run dialog box type sendto. Click OK. In Windows Vista, Windows 7 & Windows 8 click start > run or press the Windows key+R to open the run dialog. In the run dialog enter the following:

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

You can also use shell:sendto

3) The Windows sendto folder will open. You will see the existing send to shortcuts in that folder.
4) To add an item to the send to menu, create a shortcut to that item and place the shortcut in the sendto folder. You can add any program to the send to menu that allows you to open a file by using a command line argument.

Sugee, are those drives still installed on your computer? Why do you want to remove them. It is normal for drives to appear in the send to menu. You must edit the registry to add and remove drives from the sendto menu. Not a complicated registry edit but unless you are comfortable editing the registry I would leave the drives. Not quite as simple as adding and removing shortcuts.
