The Send to context menu allows you to quickly send a copy of items (ex: files, folders, libraries) to Bluetooth device, Compressed (zipped) folder, Desktop (create shortcut), Documents, Mail recipient, and removable and network drives.
To move an item instead of copy and item, you can right click or press and hold on a file or folder, click/tap on Show more options, click/tap on Send to, press and hold the Shift key, and click/tap on a drive or folder location in the Send to context menu.
This tutorial will show you how to restore any missing default Send to context menu items for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
