    Hi Brink, is there possibly a way for a "send shortcut to" option in the context menu? So I can send a shortcut of any file or folder to any location I want?

    Hello Bob, :)

    The only option that I'm aware of for now is to use "Send to" -> "Desktop (create shortcut)", then move it to where you like.

    Been doing that for a while but gets annoying when you have to send multiple shortcuts to different locations.

    Thanks anyway :)

    Could you help me?

    Hello 3ct, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I don't see any issues with the .reg file for why it won't remove the "Copy To Folder" context menu item for you.

    If you like, open Registry Editor (regedit.exe), and navigate to the key below to see if you still have it. If you do, right click on the {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} key, click on Delete, and click on Yes when prompted to approve deleting it.
