    Win 10

    Reg-edit for Win-10 CHROME add send to clip send to notepad etc

    Actually might as well get the whole ball of wax.
    I already have right click send to notepad as well as other for mos thing but apparently the shell used for dealing with selected text is "somewhere else".
    I found a walk-through but it only deals with a single aspect and I would like to add everything possible while i am there.
    right click send selected text to > Notepad (of course) but also send to: clipboard and even send to : email.
    The send to email option is one I have even built a full ipm.note string so that it does everything but hit send And I am working on adding that too. Anyone have any pointers for that let me know!

    So in theory, i should be able to select some text from a webpage or document, right click and choose send to "self" and it would drop the text into a pre-addressed email and send it out using outlook to .. In this case it is for my own benefit so the ipm.note sends to me with a subject line pre-filled, and if this works, the body will be the selected text (easier than an attachment)
    Send to Notepad has tons of uses.
    Send to clip would let me paste it to the places I don't want to pre-configure
    putting all this into a single registry add on would be super!
    the How-to-manually do it starter is at

    Also added: The link above is apparently only good for giving someone the knowledge of how to edit a registry key as it is applicable specific to Windows 7. The same key exists in Windows 8/8.1/10 etc but after closer reading of the point for the edit, i am not sure it is even related to what I am looking for. This apparently adds the content of a txt file to the clipboard. Which is only halfway there and not even getting close to the same job done.
    Copying text from Chrome may be a Chrome-Only (or specific to each browser) setup. I can see that various Extensions do get added to the right click menu but I have not found where it is managed yet.

    Evernote added itself to this area so i know it is there.

    I know every Windows program from notepad to word etc has its own right click shell and that is project for another time. This is mostly for research done on the web so the need is to get it from a browser display of text. Any comments toward doing this would be helpful
