XP Home
I have made a new "My Pictures" folder in my partitioned "F" drive.
This hopefully will allow "C" to operate a little faster.
Rather than "drag and drop" pictures from my camera to "F" ,I would
like to select and use "Send to" by right clicking.
How can I get "F" drive to appear in the right click menus?

First: Moving My Pictures to a separate partition is not going to make your
computer operate any faster. Where did you come up with that?

Second: If you want the default My Pictures folder to be in another
partition, you have to drag-and-drop it to the new partition (or
cut-and-paste.) If you merely create a new My Pictures folder in a new
partition you haven't told Windows that this is where you want the folder to
be.

When you move My Pictures to your F drive correctly, your camera should
automatically download to that folder (if the software has been set to
download pictures to My Pictures in the first place.)

After you try this you may notice that there is still a folder in your
system partition called My Pictures. This is in case you install software
that wants to put pictures in the system partition and doesn't care what you
want. Not to worry - the official My Pictures folder will be where you put
it.

A tip: Make sure the My Pictures folder is not open when you move it.

Send To Toys is an enhancement of the Send To system menu. After installing
it you will discover new additions to the Send To menu:

"Add to Send To menu" and "Remove from Send To menu" allow you to
personalize the Send To system menu for drives, folders, and programs.

That is incorrect, freeing up space on the partition windows is installed on
WILL speed up your computer if take the empty space you created and set it as
virtual memory.

I guess I deserved that, but virtual memory IS stored on the hard drive,
and used for some apps, not all, and no, your right, I do not know much about
virtual memory, I spend most of my time programming.

Sorry for confusion.

For most of us, virtual memory is about as easy to understand as
hieroglyphics. Jim Eshelman takes a pretty good stab at it here:

Hi, Ted.

That's the right article and the right web page, which Jim Eshelman hosts,
