You must be familiar with Send To Toys, a freeware to add items to Windows right-click Send To menu, which was reviewed by Usman just a few days back. It is a nice tool which makes adding and removing items from Send To menu quite easy. But how many of you know that items can be added and removed from Send To menu without using any 3rd party tool?

There is no magic formula or trick. To remove or add your own items (shortcuts) easily, simply navigate to the following directory to find all Send To items.


Navigating to this directory can be a headache for some, this is why we will use a quicker method.

Type “shell:sendto” in Start Search without the quotes and hit Enter.

shell send to start search

The above method is for Windows 7 only. If you are using Windows XP, use the same command in Run dialog box to navigate directly to Send To folder.
