create send to quick launch

Recommended Posts

if i right click on something, i can send it to the desktop as a shortcut.

can i do this with quick launch with a shortcut, not the actual file????

 

send to is located: C:\Documents and Settings\"USER NAME"\SendTo

quick launch is located: C:\Documents and Settings\"USER NAME"\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

 

if i add a shortcut folder of quick launch and put it in the sentto folder, it actually puts the file in quick launch and i dont want that.

If you actually drag any item (file or folder) to your Quick Launch bar it will automatically create a shortcut there.

 

Easy as pie! ;)

Not sure how you might accomplish that. You can however do it in two steps :

 

Rightclick the item, and choose 'create shortcut'.

Rightclick your newly created shortcut, and send it to QuickLaunch.

 

Dragging it there is faster though...

 

 

 

Not sure how you might accomplish that.

 

 

I decided to Google a bit, and I found you a small application: "Send To Toys":

You can do that without that application.

This won't. It's just a shell extension, and it will not slow you down.

Not sure what you mean. Rightclick ANYthing, and choose Send To > Desktop (as a shortcut), and exactly that will happen:

 

You'll end up with a shortcut to the file or folder on your desktop, not the file or folder itself.

As I said, not that I'm aware off. It may well be possible to write a vbs script to accomplish just that, but that's not something I'm comfortable with.

 

Maybe someone else?
