The trick I’m going to show you today is one that I only learned about recently. I love discovering cool new things like this. This has to do with the “Send To” menu. You’ve probably used this before. You right-click on a file and the new menu appears, and one of the options is “Send To”. You put your mouse over those 2 words, and another menu flies out, which lists the options of where you can send that item.
It’s likely that you already know that you can use the Send To menu to create a shortcut on the desktop to a program or a file or a folder. Or you can create a zipped folder. Or a bunch of other things.
That in itself is a pretty cool little process. I use it all the time.
But wait…there’s more!
This is the thing that I just learned recently. Instead of just doing a simple right-click on the file or folder you want to “Send”, try holding down the Shift key while you right click. Then move over to the Send To menu and see how it has changed. There are a lot more options listed there for you to send that file to now:
Just about any place you could want to send a file or folder is listed there. And all it took was holding down the Shift key.
