Add programs to “Send To” Menu in Windows 7

Recently, someone asked if they can add Notepad or Wordpad to their “Send to” menu in Windows 7 when you right click a TXT file.  You can add anything into this menu with ease.

  1. Click on Start and then Run
  2. Enter this path: %appdata%\microsoft\Windows\Sendto
  3. Create a shortcut to any application you would like.
  4. As an example, right click and then select New > Shortcut.
  5. For the location of the program enter:
    “%ProgramFiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe”

This will add WordPad and you’re all set!
