    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)

    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.
