 Post subject: File & Folder Options  Topic is solved
New postPosted: Tue May 01, 2012 1:52 pm 

I recently have noticed that my Send to option after you right click on a file or folder does not show the default options like Compressed File or Documents or Desktop all it shows is E:\ drive and H:\ drive below is a screenshot of what I'm talking about. I have run sfc /scannow and it shows no issues and if I create another user account windows works normally. To me something is either toggled off or toggled on

1. Check this location

C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

copy all files from your working windows's acc(From new acc) and paste in your acc's SendTo folder

Or

2. Download the attachment

Extarct all file to desktop > Go to Properties(on every file one by one) > Genrel Tab > Click on "Unblock"

if "Unblock" is not available there than go to next point ;)

Or

3. Copy all file from extracted .Zip file and paste to SendTo Folder

Click on Start type shell:sendto Or Go to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

and paste there

if you want to remove any entry than just delete that shortcut .

That's it ;)

Thanks for your timely answer and it seems "fixwise" to hit the nail squarely on the head.... but I have one little problem... when I try to locate Send to it has been removed or erased which by the way I think started the whole thing. When I enter shell:sendto there are no matches. When I go to the other account I created as a test bed it will not let me share files with myself... so is there a way to recreate that folder?
