I would like to create a link/shortcut in the explorer context menu that points to a shared drive on my network. So that I could right click a file or folder from inside file explorer then from the context menu that opens up, I could click on a link to copy or move the file to the network location I have setup.

Please let me know if you need any more details. This is on Windows 10 Pro 1909 with a simple ethernet LAN network.

Thank you John

  • How about placing a URL into C:\Users\<USER PROFILE>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo I did this with Windows XP years ago, I remember though, I had to write a password over and over. – vssher Mar 17 at 4:21
  • Thank you for the sugestion, but it did not work for me on Win 10. I tried to add a shortcut in the path you listed, but it would not allow me to locate the shared drive that way ... as a test I did add a local folder that way but it never did show it in the contex menu when I tried to access it. I know there is some application that will allow me to alter the context menu but I cant remember the name of it and it is NOT "Right Click Enhancer". – John Ahlds Mar 17 at 19:41
