How To Add To Send To Menu

I had my Jigsaw program so I could right click on a picture and use the open with and open it in the Jigsaw, all of a sudden that is not in my send to right-click. I have the program but don’t know how to get it back in there. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help.


The good news is adding programs or folders to the Send To menu is pretty easy. Start by going to to the start menu and clicking Run (you can also hold down the Windows Key and press R) and type: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo and press enter.

This will open the Send To folder. Right-click in a blank area of the screen and select new then click shortcut.


Click browse then navigate to the program exe or the folder you want to send to and press OK. Click next and then type the name you want to appear in the Send To menu and click finish.

Your shortcut will now appear in the Send To menu as you’ve named it. I named mine PhotoshopEdit in the example below.

    I love this tip. Everything I download gets backed up into two separate back up hard drives. Every time I did that I would have to go to My Computer, select the hard drive, select the folder that the download pertained to, right click, drag and drop then select Copy Here. Then I would have to do it again for the second hard drive back up.
    Now all I have to do is right click the item scroll down to Send To and select the folder I want the download to go to. What a GREAT time saver. Thanks a Million. Its tips like this that will always keep me as a Premium Member.

    What I did was add a shortcut to the “sendto” folder on my desktop, now every time I need to add something I make a shortcut on my desktop to it, then just drag it onto the short cut to the sendto folder and it’s added. I thought this was an easy way to keep adding items.
    I hope this helps somebody
    Let me know what you think about this way of doing it…
