Send To problem

When I right click START, and select EXPLORER, The list that appears doesn't show SEND TO.

I need to know how to add SEND TO to that list, as well as other items.There are not many places I can send to at the present time.

Make sure you have the following in the Registry

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]
@="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

Also make sure that in your "Documents and Settings/<username> folder, there is a hidden systems folder labeled "send to"

If you want to add destinations to the "send to" dropdown list, you can simply add a sortcut to that destination in the "send to" folder.

Click Start?Run?type ?regedit? (without the quotes)?click OK?click the plus sign (called expanding) next to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (it changes to a minus sign)(also, if you only see My Computer, click the plus sign to expand it)?scroll down to AllFileSystemObjects (in alphabetical order after the .xxx files) and expand it?expand Shellx?expand ContextMenuHandlers?left click on ?Send To? (no quotes)?look for the data entry @="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"?if it is not there, copy this answer, then right-click in the right window pane on the word (Default), click Modify?right click in the window under Value Data?click Paste?click OK?close the Registry editor.

By the way, the "Send To" will not appear on the Explorer list unless you have selected (highlighted) a file. Did you select a file first?

I followed the instructions to change the registry and now I still do not have the SEND TO on the Explore list, I haven't got it anywhere when I right click to select SEND TO.The only thing I did not do was click OK just before I closed the resistry editor. There was no OK to click.Help! I tried this three times..

I'm sorry I did click the OK each time.
