Disable the Send To Menu

To disable the Send To Menu in Windows, following the instructions below:

  • Open the Start menu, click on Run, then type regedit and click OK.
  • Find the following registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To.
  • Find the string value (Default), then right-click Modify and edit the value. This is the value that enables, or disables the “Send To” menu.
  • The value already has {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}, which means the menu is enabled, delete the value, Click OK, and exit the Registry editor.
  • Now the value is disabled.

This will create a nice right-click looking menu instead of having to see something that most people don’t use. You could alternatively just weed out the stuff that you don’t use in Send To and make it shorter and more optimized. Word of caution: you are messing with the registry and if you’ve had no experience with it, you could seriously hose up the computer. Yes, we said, HOSE IT UP. So just make sure that you have a backup of the registry.
