In XP you could add to the send to menu. I had one that would send something to the desktop. In W-7 there is one that says Desktop short cut. I don't want a short-cut, I want it to be put there. Any help would be much appreciated
(Solved) - Send to(7 posts)
If you send to desktop, it will create a shortcut of that object on the desktop. But you can add any folder to the sendto menu. Type : shell:sendto into the start/search field and hit Enter. That brings the sendto folder up. Now you can drag any folder shortcut (e.g. Documents shortcut) from the desktop into that sendto folder. In that case the Documents folder will appear in the sendto context menu. You can even make a shortcut of the desktop itself and pull it into the sendto folder. Then you can send e.g. a picture directly to the desktop.
Start | Run (type) shell:sendto (click Ok)
Next: Right-click in the right pane and select: New > shortcut
In the next dialog box click Browse and choose the shortcut you want adding
