    I have added some folders & a drive to the "send to" folder and they are listed. But when I right click on a file or folder they are not listed in the options in the drop down box.

    I right click and drag the folder and drop it in the "send to" folder and select to copy and/or shortcut and it puts it there.

    What am I doing wrong? That's the way I did it in 98.

    Thanks.

    Are you placing these shortcuts in your profile's Send To folder?

    Thanks for the reply DoubleHeilx. That's a good anchor.

    Do you mean the one located at:
    c:\Doc's. & settings\(user name)\send to That's where I put them, is there another send to file?

    That sounds like it should have worked.

    Try this and see if you get any different results.

    Start > Run > Sendto
    File > New > Shortcut

    Thanks WhitPhil, that worked. But it went to c:\doc's & settings\administrator\send to

    What ever works.

    Thanks.

    You must have been logged into the administrator account??

    If you wish, you can fix it from Explorer by browsing to the {user} sendto and doing the same File > New
