An old Power Toy

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Prior to Windows XP, a Power Toy that I used a lot with NT and 2000 was the
Explorer tool "copy filename to clipboard" . I found that very useful.
However, it doesn't seem to be included in the Windows XP collection of
Power Toys.

Does anyone know if I can safely install the old one without damaging
something in Windows XP, or is there a similar freeware applet somewhere?

Thanks.

    [[Are any of these programs dangerous to use in Windows 98, ME, or XP?

    Send to X, which adds to the “Send To” context menu options of Send To Any
    Folder, Send To Clipboard, and Send To Command Line, has caused some
    problems in Windows 98. Some people report that it interferes with Win98’s
    built-in Send to Desktop feature. This does not happen on every computer (it
    didn’t happen on mine), but does happen on some.

    Win ME & XP NOTE: With only a single exception known to me, users have
    reported that this PowerToy installs and works just fine on Windows ME and
    XP, without needing the patch. To ward against even a slim chance of a
    problem, set a Restore Point right before installing “Send to X,”
    immediately test for problems, and do a System Restore if you want to back
    out of the install.]]

    It's on my XPPro and I have encountered no problems.

    To create sub menus on the Send To menu type Sendto in the Start - Run dialog box. Click a blank spot and choose New then Folder. Rename the folder to the name you want on the Send To menu. Drag your shortcuts you want on the menu into this folder.

    Put a shortcut to Sendto folder into the Sendto folder. Then when you want to add a program or folder to the Send To menu right click it, choose Send To then while holding Ctrl + Shift click Sendto.

    To get a list of filenames select all and Send To Clipboard As Name. This also works in Search.
