SentTo-folder item is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There!

    I wrote a Visual Basic Script for the SentTo-folder to send paths and filenames of selected files and folders to an e-mail recipient, instead of attaching the files to the mail.

    The script is named

    __Send Link as Mail.vbs

    and resides in


    It worked both on my Windows 8.1 machine and my father's Windows 10 machine flawlessly.

    However, while it still works on my machine, on my father's machine, for a couple of weeks the script is not displayed in Explorer when right-clicking and selecting "Sent To" anymore!

    Could this be caused by a Security Update, like disallowing VBS in SentTo? I hardly can fathom another reason.

    Thanks for your support!!!

    Also, if there is a 0 bytes entry second in the send to folder called Bluetooth, delete it. This is a bad file that stops the list from displaying
