It is very useful to check the Open destination on completion checkbox , so you can check your results .And you can also check which radio button pleases you the most . The 4 radio buttons asks you which folder you should have on your send to-> folder (option) . So , for example if you check the first radio button you will have the last folder used for transfering files . In case you haven’t used yet ,  it will open with a management file system similar to Windows explorer .

The Clipboard(the third one) tab shows you some of the great options for the “Send to Clipboard (as name)” item… you can choose whether or not you want quotes, and whether you want files to be separated on different lines, if you send multiple files to the clipboard.

The Default Mail Recipient tab (the fourth tab)helps you choose a default mail adress where you can send files. The idea is that you can specify a single mail recipient to send a file to.  If you want to have a default mail recipient than complete the to field with a valid adress mail (for test) . To use this feature go to a file , make a right click ->send to -> mail recipient . This will open your default client mail on Windows (for example Outlook) and if you already completed a e-mail adress on the fourth tab , that adress will appear on your mail client .

Cnet review

This freeware allows you to easily send your files anywhere within your computer, although the program lacks a help file for beginners. After installation, users can configure where they want files to be moved to. Afterward, the program creates a tabbed Control Panel applet allowing you to add and remove folders or programs in the Send To menu.

The program then sits idly by until you right-click a file or folder. It can then be accessed in the Send To menu. Move your files or folders anywhere you like: the Clipboard, the command prompt, the Quick Launch menu, the Recycle Bin, and the Run command dialog box.

We found it easier to manage our files with this program, as it extends Send To menu capabilities. All users can try this application that simply extends the reach of the Send To menu.
