    Shell:Sendto how to prevent send to to show drives?


    I have added a number of shotcuts in the : C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
    folder.
    These shortcuts involve sub folders only.

    All fine, except ...
    in Windows Explorer drives are also being listed (even a never used CD-ROM as B-drive)

    Is there a way to 'limit' Send To in a way that it show -only- the sub folders ?

    Thanks!

    To help us better understand what is going on, can you please post a shortcut of one that is NOT working correctly.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    The shortcuts to sub folders, they work fine.
    No problem with those.

    However, the send to sub menu also shows a list external USB drives, that is to say, when they are running.

    If possible, I would like to get rid of those from the list. I do not use those entries. Only sub folders on those drives.
    If it is complicated, I let it rest: it is just nice to have shorter list.

    thanks

    Hello @tfwul,

    If I understand you correctly, it sounds like the Shortcuts themselves may need a different or additional command that is stricter or more defined.

    If at all possible, posting the commands will better help us with understanding what you are referring to and hopefully help us to provide you with a solution.

    Paul; I think twful means to not show Drive letters in the Send To menu :
    Perhaps, this might help for Drives.

    And maybe for any other items;

    Thanks to you all.
    @das10 -YES, indeed, the registry entry: Remove_drives_from_SendTo_context_menu_for_current_user.reg
    was/is exactly what I was looking for.

    Great!

    Matter solved.

    Thanks again.

    p.s.
    I confess: am a little ashamed though. Have been on 10forums for already a while and should have found this myself,
    instead of asking for what feels like a slightly newbie-question

    No need to feel ashamed at all, it's all too easy to forget that Brink has tutorials to cover a wide range of issues to do with Win 10.
