So I'm just trying to send a file to a compressed folder from Explorer. But for some reason the only option I have there is "Bluetooth device".

Did some Googling, found a suggestion to check the C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo folder to see if anything was missing. Everything is there as expected, but the option is missing when I right click. Shift+Right click doesn't help. I am not sure what else to do at this point.

Any ideas?

    reg query "HKCR\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\SendTo" should return (Default) REG_SZ {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}. Disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers one-by-one to find the culprit: try NirSoft's ShellExView – JosefZ Jan 4 '16 at 22:53
  • It already does return that – eddie_cat Jan 4 '16 at 22:55
  • Do you mean that you are "right-clicking on a file" and choosing right-click options, "Send to"? Also, what operation system are yo using? If Windows there are two ways that I may be able to help. – ejbytes Jan 5 '16 at 5:03
  • Something similar as to what JosefZ said. Copy this: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To] @="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}" into notepad and do a save-as Sendto.REG on your desktop. Then after you save it, double click on it to run it. If you don't have suffixes visible you'll have to do the save-as with quotes to save the file with correct suffix in this manner; "Sendto.REG" in the naming bar when doing a save-as. – ejbytes Jan 5 '16 at 5:11
  • @ejbytes I did that, same result. To answer your earlier questions, it's Windows 10 & yes, I am right clicking on the file, pointing at Send To, and the only option in there is Bluetooth Device when normally it would say Desktop, Compressed File, etc... – eddie_cat Jan 5 '16 at 14:29
