Hello folks,
When I right click on a file I used to be able to send to my 'A' drive (Floppy) but for some reason this option is now missing. Any ideas folks? :confused:

Hi Dingus,

Check for this.

See if you have the below registry key in the registry.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]
@="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

==========================

Click Start

Run

type Regedit

Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To

You should have a registry key value named Default, with {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837} as the value data.


If not before making changes backup the registry.

Click My Computer

c:\ drive

Windows

Do you have a Send to folder?

It may be hidden.

To display hidden files and folders

Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders.


Note: Another way to open Control Panel is to click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. If you don't see the item you want, click view all Control Panel options.

I'm not sure where the option would have gone but, if you still have the sendto folder, just recreate the entry.
From Explorer, create a shortcut to your A: drive, then cut/paste it into your \Sendto folder.

Hi,

Try this patch. It is for Windows 9X and fixes the "send to" option.
Click here .



Here is the info in the patch if you want to manually change the rigistry:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.DeskLink]
@="CLSID\\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}]
"NeverShowExt"=""
@="Shortcut to Desktop PowerToy"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}\InProcServer32]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\SENDMAIL.DLL "
"ThreadingModel"="Apartment"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\EXPLORER.exe,3 "

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}\shellex]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}\shellex\DropHandler]
@="{9E56BE61-C50F-11CF-9A2C-00A0C90A90CE}"

TOF thanks, I did as you instructed but there is still no send to a: when I write click on a file. I assumed that ME would have taken the .reg file OK but looks like it didn't. Any further help would be appreciated.

TOF, I'm talking about the EditReg.reg. Do you know of a .reg file that will undo it's change. :cool:

There is no reg file to undo the patch as far as I know. You may want to go into the registry editor and delete the strings if you are having problems. The registry keys are listed in the above post. RegSeeker might do that for you as well.
