    How so I choose my favorite folders for "Copy to" and "Copy items"?


    Would like to choose which folders are displayed in the menu. Anyone knows how this can be done? Check attachments for the menu I'm referring to.

    The default on my computers on the right-click context menu of an item is Send to then I can choose where to send it. On this example I also have Copy to and Move to, both are a modification of the Registry found in the Tutorial section of this forum. The Send to that is the default shows some choices the User can make. Lower in the menu is Copy and Cut, using either puts it on the Clipboard ready to Paste somewhere else.

    Hi, a couple of ideas using two different free/licensable 3rd party tools:

    a. File Menu Tools

    - adds a bunch of extra optional context menu items via 1 added entry in the main list including Copy to, Move to.

    The dialogue these open has Favorites list you can configure, highlighted. (I've shown both the context menu and the dialogue in the same screenshot - normally both aren't on the screen).

    b. Listary
    This is a rather unique program with more features than you might expect.

    E.g. middle mouse click in a blank area of an explorer dialogue displays a menu.
    This offers, amongst other things, Favourites and Recent folders.

    Here I've middle clicked in the Send To dialogue (mentioned above).

    Notice the Favorite option, and how hovering over a folder in the list also then offers a flyout of that folder's contents which you can choose from.

    In order to add a folder to that list, use "Pin to Quick access", as on the screenshot.

    To remove the item you placed there in this way, head to Quick Access, right-click on the item and choose "unpin".

    Add 'Copy To folder' and 'Move To folder' Context Menu in Windows 10

    Well done. A direct answer to the question.

    All the best,
