"Sendto" change

When I right click on a picture the target is My Pictures by default. What is the Registry key to modify to another location of my choice?

Don't need to change it in the registry. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the Send To folder for your particular profile and make a shortcut to any location you like.

Sorry, I think I miss-stated my question. When I right click on a picture (graphic) one of my choices is "save picture as". If I click on that it sends me to my documents/my pictures. I would like to redirect to a folder I have created.

"Save Picture As" is not one of the default Windows commands.
I would look in the Prefs/Options of whichever program put that command in your menus.

edit:
sorry, just realized you were referring to Internet Explorer,
not Windows Explorer.
D'oh!

You can use TweakUI (Explorer tab > Special Folders) to change the location of the My Pictures folder to the folder of your choice.

It can be done through editing the Registry, but this is the easiest way.

In my TweakUI I don't have a "Special Folder" on the Explorer.

What version of Windows are you running?

I checked, and here in Tweak UI XP it's NOT "Explorer" (sorry about that!), but TweakUI > My Computer > Special Folders.

Here's some info I received:

Save As location change

To change the default folder to which Internet Explorer will save items, you must change the value for Personal in the following registry keys to specify the new location:
HKEY_USERS\Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

HKEY_USERS\Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

---------------------------------------------------------------
See also TweakUI > My Computer

Yes and No:

That ought to point to your My Documents folder.

You were asking the default Save location when saving a picture, and that should point to My Documents\My Pictures.

Subsequently it's possible to change that My Pictures location.
