Is there a shell extension or some program which lets you do it in one click?

You can actually do this with any folder.

Depending on your OS (you did not specify), find the Start Menu and create a shortcut of the Startup folder.

Drop it into the Sendto Folder. Now you can right click any program and use Send To. . .

You can get to the Sendto folder by typing "shell:sendto" into the start menu search or the location bar of an explorer window. – Ampersand Nov 21 '11 at 19:41
When I tried this, it copied the file I had right-clicked into Startup instead of creating a shortcut. How do you get it to automatically create a shortcut (like the premade Send to “Desktop (create shortcut)” version)? – binki Jan 20 '15 at 16:24
