Adding Applications into SendTo

Have you seen a SendTo option when you right-click a file in Explorer?? You can actually customize this option to open a file using a particular program. All you need to do is to right-click the file, goto the SendTo option and choose the program you want to send it to. The file will then be automatically opened by that program. This is how you can do it.

  1. Open your Explorer
  2. Let's say if you want NotePad to be inside the SendTo Option, goto the Windows Directory, right-click the NotePad program and copy it
  4. Paste it as a shortcut into the SENDTO folder

That's it... You will be able to see the NotePad link in the SendTo option.

I use this SendTo option for editing files like the AUTOEXEC.BAT and for sending HTML files to different browsers for compatibility tests.
