Adding Context menu Items
Date: 18 Jun 2004 11:04:19 -0700
I am wanting to replicate a linux feature that I can't seem to find
anywhere in windows as an addin or program. If anyone is familiar with
linux, if you right click on a folder or file, you get the option to
send to any other folder on your hard drive. For example, if I had a
file on my desktop that I wanted to send to
C:\Windows\system32\DirectX\Dinput, I wou;d have to open an explorer
windows and navigate there I could just right click on it and with
expanding menus I could choose to send it there. This is a really neat
feature but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I have researched
how you can add an itme to the right click menu by adding to the
registry but this isn't how I am wanting to do it since the files and
folders on your hard drive are so dynamic you would have to constantly
be adding and subtracting from the registry. I don't know that much
about shell programming but I think this is how to accomplish this
program. If anyone knows how to accomplish this please post some
