    How to add Google Drive, Dropbox or SkyDrive into ‘Send To’ menu in Windows 7?

    I used to access several cloud storage facilities like Google Drive, Dropbox, SkyDrive etc through my laptop running on Windows 7. Now, I would like to add these storage options into ‘Send To’ menu. What should I do for that?

    You need to create shortcuts for Google Drive, Dropbox and SkyDrive before adding them to ‘Send To’ menu. Click the ‘Start’ button and type windows explorer into search bar. Once you can find the Windows Explorer from the search results, make a single click on it. When you can view the ‘Explorer’ window, enter %APPDATA%/Microsoft/Windows/SendTo into address bar. Press the ‘Enter’ key afterwards so that you will be redirected to ‘Send To’ folder. Then, copy the shortcuts and paste them inside the folder. Quit the explorer and bring up the ‘Sent To’ menu to check for Google Drive, Dropbox and SkyDrive options.

    As we all know, SkyDrive and Google Drive clients are available for Windows. If you have already installed and using SkyDrive and Google Drive, you probably have noticed that one can easily drag-and-drop a file to SkyDrive or Google Drive [COLOR=#00AEF0 !important]folder[/COLOR] to sync file to the account.

    The first thing we need to do is open the path for where the “Send to” shortcuts are stored, so press the Windows + R keyboard combination to open a run box and type “shell:sendto” then hit enter.

    When the explorer window open you will see all the items that appear in your “Send to” menu. We are going to create a new entry so click new item –> shortcut, if you are running Windows 7, right click and choose new –> shortcut.

    For the location of the item, enter: %userprofile%\SkyDrive

    Then click next.

    SkyDrive is a decent name for our shortcut , so just click Finish.

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:

    >>Open Windows Explorer.
    >>Select the following text, then copy it to the clipboard by pressing Ctrl-C.
    %APPDATA%/Microsoft/Windows/SendTo
    >>In Explorer, click in an empty area inside the address bar. Doing so should highlight everything in there (meaning the currently displayed folder location).
    >>Press Ctrl-V to paste in that previously copied text, then press Enter. Now you should be looking at the folder containing Windows' send-to shortcuts.
    >>Now you need to find the Windows shortcut to Dropbox, SkyDrive, or whatever. This may require opening another Explorer window, or you may have a shortcut on your desktop. Either way, right-click it and choose Copy.
    >>Back in the original Explorer window, the one displaying SendTo, right-click an open area and choose Paste. Presto: Your shortcut appears. Close the window and you're done.


    Thank you.

    Add Dropbox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive to Windows' Send-To Menu






    Dragging and dropping isn't always the fastest way to handle file operations. Either you have to open and arrange two windows, or you have to navigate Explorer's folder tree, which many users find confusing.
    Sometimes it's just easier to right-click a file, then choose its destination from Windows' Send to menu.
    By default, that menu includes such destinations as Desktop, Mail Recipient, and Compressed Folder. Wouldn't it be great if you could add Dropbox, Google Drive, SugarSync, SkyDrive, or another cloud service to that menu? You can; here's how:
    1. Open Windows Explorer. (Just to clarify, that's Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.)
    2. Select the following text, then copy it to the clipboard by pressing Ctrl-C.
    %APPDATA%/Microsoft/Windows/SendTo
    3. In Explorer, click in an empty area inside the address bar. Doing so should highlight everything in there (meaning the currently displayed folder location).


    4. Press Ctrl-V to paste in that previously copied text, then press Enter. Now you should be looking at the folder containing Windows' send-to shortcuts.
    5. Now you need to find the Windows shortcut to Dropbox, SkyDrive, or whatever. This may require opening another Explorer window, or you may have a shortcut on your desktop. Either way, right-click it and choose Copy.
    6. Back in the original Explorer window, the one displaying SendTo, right-click an open area and choose Paste. Presto: Your shortcut appears. Close the window and you're done.
    Now, whenever you right-click any file or folder and mouse over Send to, you should see your cloud service among the options. Click to send the document(s) winging their way skyward.
