    Default "send to" option help

    Using win ME and find the right click "send to" option very useful.
    I would like to use this option to send files to my cd burner software.

    How do I add my CD burner to the "send to" list of options?
    I need instructions on how to do this.

    Please help

    Hi ooh yeh. I found this somewhere recently and it works for adding my memory stick USB to the "Send To". No reason why it shouldn't do what you want......

    - Open My Computer
    - Double click drive C (or wherever you have Windows)
    - Double click Document and Settings
    - Double click the appropriate user folder - in my case my name
    - Double click the Send To folder. If this is hidden (default) click Tools >
    Folder Options > Show Hidden etc.
    - Click on File > New > Shortcut
    - Follow the brief instructions to create of browse to a shortcut destination
    - Future use of the right click > Send To will offer that destination as an option.

    You may want to conceal the hidden stuff again but as the only user of this system I don't bother.

    ..might be useful.

    or go "folder options', then "show system files", in there.

    What cd burning program, have u got installed?

    If u had cd creator / directcd / INCD installed, there would most probably be a send to option there already.

    I don't have any CD burning program. Could never think of a reason for installing one.
    Just right click on a file, select send to, and in my case E: CD Drive.

    Yup XP, will put a send option to the burner anyway.

    BUT since XP's burning is useless I've disabled it. And use Nero instead.

    What's useless about it? I find it ideal. Works perfectly.

    Your method works because you have WinXP. WinME does not have native CD burning support.
