    Send to Bluetooth disappears from the menu when restarting Windows


    Greetings!
    I have a problem with the Send To Bluetooth Device option, every time I restart Windows this option disappears from the Send To context menu, making me have to manually recreate the shortcut in the Send To folder.
    It already got annoying.
    Has anyone had a similar situation? Is there a registry key missing or corrupted?

    You may use a script to copy the shortcut into the folder automatically when Windows starts.

    I manually recreate the shortcut each time I restart Windows.
    Export a script? How do I do it?

    Download the attached zipped file.
    Extract the file.
    Put your Bluetooth shortcut into the "Copy the shortcut" folder.
    Rename your Bluetooth shortcut Shortcut
    Double-click on the script Copy the shortcut.vbs in the "Copy the shortcut" folder.
    See whether the shortcut will be copied to the "SendTo" folder, in which the shortcut's name will become "Bluetooth device"
    If it works, we can use Task Scheduler to run the VBScript file at Windows startup.

    Two hours after I posted this question on the forum it was already resolved,
    In Microsoft forums, nobody answered me in more than a month ...

    Have you used "wscript.exe" in the scheduler? The task cannot be completed without "wscript.exe".

    In starting a program, I pointed to wscript and not vbs itself.

    C: \ Windows \ System32 \ wscript.exe

    Add arguments:

    C: \ Users \ Ro Wood \ Local Repository \ Zip \ Copy the shortcut \ Copy the shortcut.vbs

    On the scheduler ...

    I don't know how to write scripts, but I know how to use the scheduler, I already had to use it once or twice ...

    Now I restarted the computer and the script doesn't work anymore, the shortcut was not created anymore.
    What could be going wrong?

    The VBScript will not create a shortcut. It will only copy your shortcut into the "SendTo" folder.
    Your shortcut and the VBScript file need to be in the same folder. When you double-click on "Copy the shortcut.vbs", will the shortcut be copied into the "SendTo" folder? If not, have you renamed the shortcut? The name has to be "Shortcut". Can you put the shortcut into a zipped file and post it as an attachment here?

    Just double-click to run the script "Create a shortcut.vbs" in the attached zipped file.
    It will create a "Bluetooth device" shortcut in the "SendTo" folder. No copying is needed.
