How to Restore Default Send to Context Menu Items in Windows 10

information   Information
The Send to context menu makes it easy for you to quickly send a copy of items (ex: files, folders, libraries) to Bluetooth device, Compressed (zipped) folder, Desktop (create shortcut), Documents, Fax recipient, Mail recipient, and removable and network drives.

You can also right click or press and hold on a file or folder, press and hold the Shift key, click/tap on Send to, and click/tap on a drive or folder in the menu to move the file or folder to that location instead of copying it.

This tutorial will help you to restore any missing default Send to context menu items for your account in Windows 10.
