Right Click Send To is Missing Items

Hello.
Recently my Send To stopped showing all but one of the options that it normally had. The only option I have is to send to CD.
I have looked in the SendTo folder in Documents and Settings and the SendTo folder in System32, and both folders have all the files in them (Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink, Mail Recipient.MAPIMail, My Documents.mydocs, RecordNow!.RecordNowSendToExt, Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget).
I have also went and looked in the registry and I have this
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ZFSendToTarget
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ZFSendToTarget\PersistentHandle r
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers\Send To "{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

Any idea on how I can get all these items listed back in the Send To?
XP Pro SP 3
Thanks
Larry

First of all go to C:\Documents and Settings\"User" (your username goes there). After that go to Tools - Folder Options (View tab). Make sure you have "Hide File Extensions" unchecked and you want to view hidden folders. Now you will see a folder called "SendTo". This is where those items reside for the right click - send to option. To get your desktop one back, create a new text file and rename it whatever you want with .DeskLink as the file extension. The default would look like this:

Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink

You can add whatever you want in there too.

Re: Right Click Send To is Missing Items

I see I haven't made it clear as to where I have looked in.
I have looked in C:\Documents and Settings\Draft2.CADD2\SendTo
I have looked in C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\SendTo
Both places have the following files in them:
Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink
Mail Recipient.MAPIMail
My Documents.mydocs
RecordNow!.RecordNowSendToExt
Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget

Attached is an image of me right clicking on a file in the SendTo folder and only having the option to send it to a CD/DVD drive.

Re: Right Click Send To is Missing Items

Try the below fix to restore the item, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start , type the following path and press Enter :
    • C:\Users\default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
  2. Copy the file Desktop (create shortcut) from the Default user folder and place a copy in your user profile SendTo folder.
  3. The SendTo folder of your user profile can be accessed by typing shell:sendto in the Start-search box.

Re: Right Click Send To is Missing Items

I got it fixed.
In the registry, under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, there were no values set for:
.Desklink
.MAPIMail
.mydocs
.ZFSenToTarget
.RecordNowSendToExt

I went and exported the values from a different computer and dragged them into my registry. Now the right click works fine.
