Asalam mu alakum to all!
In this tutorial we will be talking about <Send To> folder, a folder where we can add a new location or favorite Editor and they will appear in the Send To Menu .

Many people use registry Editor to edit this menu but the drawback is, if you are newbie and a little thing goes wrong you can crash the windows. Adding a new location or your favorite editor to the <Send To> folder is much easier than edit a registry key. It is a time saving technique and more positive for me as I have been engaged in some new activities and can't reach to PF on time so I would prefer like to add a new location of PF, where i can send my tutorial direct, in-case we have to ask the permission from admin. Give it up, it seems to be impossible. Here we start.Firstly, you need to locate the <Send To> folder in your system.(don't be bothered that is in Local Disk (C:)).
1:Double click on <My Computer> Icon to open it.
2:Open the <Local Disk (C:)> by double clicking on it or right click and choose <Open> from shortcut menu. In-case you have installed the operation system (windows) in other than drive C or you have multi operating systems, then locate the respective drive and open it.

3: Open the <Documents and Settings> folder.
4:In the <Documents and Settings> folder, open the <Administrator> folder or your account name respective folder.
5:Now you have to locate the <Send To> folder in the administrator folder but remember that <Send To> folder is by-default set to be hidden. Follow these steps to show the hidden folder and files.
a: In the <Administrator> folder, click on the <Tools> menu and choose <Folder Option> from displayed menu. <Folder Options> dialog appears.

c: Click <Apply> and now <OK> button to close the dialog or direct <OK> to get two on one click.
d:Now you will see a lot of hidden folder but we are to work only on <Send To> folders. Double click, to open it.

b: We will add a new location and an editor( you can add as many as you want). First we add a new location. In the shortcut wizard click <Browse> button and point to the location you want to add to the <Send To> Menu. For example we add a new location for <Font> folder from <Local Disk (D:)>. When you complete the process click <OK>.
