sendto-manager-introWhen you use your computer to a lot, you will want to make completing your tasks as easy as possible. Many times this is done when you add shortcuts for programs or application launcher programs or docks. Another great way to add a shortcut is to your contextual (right-click) menu.

SendTo Manager is a great way to add to the Send To option in your Windows Right-click menu. By having frequently used applications in your Send To menu, you can save yourself some time from having to open the application, then add the file, then complete the action.

 

What SendTo Manager can do for you

There are programs you may use all the time like Skype. If you frequently use Skype to exchange files while you are chatting, you can add Skype to the list of shortcuts. Now you can right click on the file on your Desktop, choose the Skype contact you want to send it to. You may find that using SendTo Manager isn’t a big time saver in this case.

However, another option is when you use an application like File Camouflage to hide files. Having both Encrypt and De-crypt option in the right-click Send To menu WILL shave a few clicks off the process.
