Supercharge your Send To menu, or ActiveWords it!

It would be nice to put everything you like on the "Send to" menu on the right click menu, wouldn`t it? And indeed you can! But how?

In fact you can put any shortcut to the "Send to" menu. Find the folder you want to have there. Make a shortcut and cut it. Then just navigate to document and settings folder, select the correct user, enter the "Send to" folder ( usually hidden ) and paste the folder in it. VoilĂ ! A new folder in the "send to" - menu.

But there is a even more cunning way to do it. Just make a shortcut of the "Send to" folder, and place it in the "Send to" folder. Then if you want a particular folder in the "Send to" menu, just make a shortcut, and "Send to" the "Send to" folder.

AND yes, of course you can compose the most cunning ActiveWords to use it:


My name: Send to (ST)
: <CTRL>x</CTRL><WINSTART>e</WINSTART><WAIT FOR WINDOW:TITLE=My><F4>C:\Documents and Settings\CURRENT USER\SendTo<RETURN><CTRL>v</CTRL><RETURN>
Presumptions: The wanted shortcut must be selected before triggering.

Happy sending!

This blawg is about ActiveWords as a supertool, to manage Windows XP, and together with other effective tools as Mindmanager and Opera. Combined with GTD, your PC is then turbocharged.

Remember
Remember that ActiveWords "types out" the scripts. Often a single space in the wrong place can cause the script to "misfire"
