Windows 7 SendTo

When you rightclick on the start button and then choose “Explorer”, in previous versions of Windows this would take you to your own user profile folder. This contains a folder called “SendTo”, where you can (for example) add a shortcut to notepad.

I was looking for this folder in Windows 7, but it wasn’t visible in the explorer. When I tried to type it in the address bar of the explorer I got an “access denied” message.

The trick is now to type “shell:sendto” as a location. This will take you in the familiar folder to add your shortcuts.

I found this tip at (in Dutch).
