JSI Tip 1092. Is your Send To missing?

If your Send To is missing when you right click in Windows NT Explorer, Microsoft recommends that you verify the following entry is present in the registry, using Regedt32:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFileSystemObjects\Shellex\ContexMenuHandlers\Send To\<No Name>

According to Microsoft, this blank Value name is a type REG_SZ entry
and should have a string value of (7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837)

I could not find this entry on any Windows NT computer I checked.

If you create the above entry (and reboot), and Send TO still doesn't function, try setting the <No Name> string value to
\{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837\} instead.

If this still doesn't work, I recommend that you run the following REG file using regedit /s <Drive:>\Folder\FileName.REG:


@="Microsoft SendTo Service"

@=hex(2):25,53,79,73,74,65,6d,52,6f,6f,74,25,5c,53,79,73,74,65,6d,33,32,5c,73,  68,64,6f,63,76,77,2e,64,6c,6c,00
