When you right-mouse click a file and choose "Send To" from the menu, you will see a list of possible destinations. What's important to know is that you can add and remove your own preferred items to this list.

All you need to do is to make a shortcut to a folder or application within the C:\Windows\SendTo directory and it will then appear on the Send to menu.

For example, you can usually add a shortcut to send a file directly to your favorite e-mail software as an attachment by using this feature.

All you need to do is to use Windows Explorer to navigate your way to the "C:\Windows\SendTo" directory and then right-click your mouse to bring up an action menu.

Now select "New" and then "Shortcut" from the list and add any software application or destination (such as a zip drive or the "My Documents" folder) that you like.

From that moment on, you can always right-click a file and immediately send it to anywhere or any program that you want.

This is particularly handy for those files that customers and clients frequently request, such as your standard sales contract or an agency disclosure form.

You can also remove items that you don't use from the "Send To" list by simply deleting their shortcuts from the "C:\Windows\SendTo" directory.
