Hello Everyone,

I've added some shortcuts to the All Users "Send To" folder (ie: Notepad,
Excel, etc), with the idea that any user logged into the computer will see
those shortcuts when they right click on whatever & select the Send To menu
item. However, none of the shortcuts I add are visible by any user. Yet if
I go to Start/Run/SendTo, I can add items just for the user logged in.

How do I make my All Users shortcuts truly available to all users? Thanks
in advance,

Juan

Juan,

Common SendTo folder can be establised by redirecting the folder path in the registry:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Set the "SendTo" value to the common Send To folder. Make this change in all the user profiles. Once done, type regsvr32 /n /i:U Shell32 in Start/Run dialog. Note that the combination of All Users and Current user SendTo is not possible.

Internet Explorer favorites in XP also functions the same way. (this one is a tip from David Candy)
