Find Sendto Folder in Windows 7 Explorer RRS feed

  • Question


  • I am trying to find the SendTo Folder in Windows Explorer in Windows 7 so I can add a short cut to notepad.

    The only Sendto I can find is a shortcut of a folder directly under the my folder in the users folder.  And every attempt to access it reports access denied.  The Search using System.FileName tells me that the real folder is located under my User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.  However, when I try to view this folder there is no such folder listed under User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.  When I check folder options it is set to "Show Hidden Files and Folders".    However, when I double click on the folder in the search results it opens right up and I am able to add a shortcut to Notepad.

    How can I access Sendto without such a convoluted work around?

  • Hi,

    As I know, the SendTo folder is located in UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows, not in UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.

    Regarding to "access denied", check the permission of this folder, take ownership of this folder, give yourself full control permission.

    No this results in just another access denied message.

    As I know, the SendTo folder is located in UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows, not in UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.

    That is correct.  In fact the Sendto that was visible before was a Shortcut to this folder.  I was able to openthis folder once I found it.
