Add Copy to Folder and Move to Folder functions in the menu!
  

This trick allows you to add two new functions in the context menu:
  • Copy to Folder ...
  • Move to Folder ...

You can find them via the right click of your mouse.

Longer need to use the file explorer to move files in a folder, you simply right-click the file and Enjoy!

To enable these functions, you simply copy the following in notpad and save as .reg (eg : abc.reg)

Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]
@="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
@="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]
@="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"
Now double click on .reg file (abc.reg) or right click and select Merge. Now enjoy by two new options in menu.

Really a wonderful tool which minimizes our lot of work. This is an excellant program to safely change your registry for resurrecting that favorite and useful Copy to Move to function. I tried the manual edit and had no luck, this solved it in under a minute! Thanks for this tool.

Send To and Move To are so important in my work that, just by themselves, how come Microsoft are too stupid too add this themselves? Thank you very much.
