Key combination not working on Windows 10 for sendto - Solved
« on: October 01, 2020, 12:01:48 PM »
This feature worked well on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

I have added a few shortcut locations to the "Send to" option.

The issue with it is that for me is that it would send the entire file or folder. I just wanted it to create a shortcut and send it. So I asked my colleague at work who is a program developer and he gave me a tip that worked well on both Windows 7 and 8.1.

It works but pressing on Crtl+Shift+ right mouse click with "Send to" to the desired location. I would then just send a shortcut. Like it does to the Desktop but to any link added there.

This is not longer working on Windows 10. Now When I press the Ctrl + Shift the manually added locations disappear.

Does anyone know how to do it?

I tried other random key combinations and none of them worked.

There is no information about this on the internet. Even the tip I have been using since 2016.

I've never come across this - can you still contact that program developer friend of yours to see if he can come up with a Win 10 version.

When I press CTRL+SHIFT+right mouse, I don't get a Send to option.

That is not possible.

Do you get send to option when you just right click on a file or a folder?

On another note, I've found this article on how to restore Control Panel - https://www.isumsoft.com/windows-10/restore-control-panel-to-winx-menu.html

OK, Is there a way to create a shortcut with a key? Maybe it can be used for this?

When you right click on a file there is an option to create a shortcut which will put it onto your desktop.

This article explains which is what I hope you want - https://www.laptopmag.com/uk/articles/make-desktop-shortcuts-windows-10

I edited the post yesterday to include that it is available for Desktop. So yes I am aware of it.

This solution is not at all what I am looking for. I am just trying to do the same thing that I did before.

Never mind, if I find a solution then I will post it here.

No need to just send me random articles.

The last article wasn't random as it was the clearest one I could find which I thought would meet your needs.

However, I thought the one about reinstating Control Panel to your Win10 would be helpful in allowing you to access your Intel graphic settings as in your other thread.

Here is a solution that works using a tool.

Download and extract the tool into Windows\System32 directory.

Then create a batch file and add the following code in the batch file.

Replace with path where is says location, might also require the quotes.

--------------------

@echo Off

xxmklink.exe %1 %1
move %1.lnk "location"

--------------------

After saving the batch file then copy it to the send to folder in this location.

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

--------------------

It will create the shortcut in that location with full name including the extension. It will not include in the name the usual "-shortcut"
