    How to Add or Remove Drives in Send to Context Menu in Windows 10


    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.

    Sometimes drives may cause a delay when trying to open the Send to context menu while you are waiting on them to connect or spin back up if turned off after being idle.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove drives in the Send to context menu for only you or all users in Windows 10.

    • Option Two: To Add or Remove Drives in Send to Context Menu for Current User using a REG file

    Hello @Dasha,

    The add .reg files will restore the default setting. They remove the DWORD value from the registry key.

    However, this is intended for physical hard drives instead. Google Drive wouldn't be included since it's basically just a folder.

    You can use an option in the tutorial below instead to add a shortcut of your Google Drive folder to the Send To context menu.

    Thanks, Brinks I did as you suggested Mate and in File Explorer > Send To' the Google Shortcut is there now but I still have no Send To option in the right-click menu under my DAZZLER Main Admin / Admin Account? I have restarted the PC twice made no difference. Should I just delete the folder on the Desktop with the 4 Add - Remove Reg Files in the folder on my Desktop?

    Odd only that account doesn't have a Send To context menu and the others do.

    You might see if using the tutorial below may add the Send To context menu back.

    There's no need to keep the .reg files unless you just want to.
