I've recently bought an Windows 8-powered notebook and since first start I have problems with context send-to menu.

Look at the screenshot.

Broken send-to

The folder displays contents of my shell:sendto folder. But despite all usual items are present, the send to menu consists only of "send e-mail".

How can I fix it?

Edit: In response to comments:

Contents of Desktop.ini of this folder:

Fax Recipient.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\FXSRESM.dll,-120
Mail Recipient.MAPIMail=@sendmail.dll,-4
Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink=@sendmail.dll,-21
Compressed (zipped) Folder.ZFSendToTarget=@zipfldr.dll,-10148
Transfer plików Bluetooth.LNK=@C:\Windows\System32\fsquirt.exe,-2343
  • Try this: askvg.com/… – Afzal Apr 22 '13 at 18:00
  • Thanks for the answer, but it won't help. I already have such entry in System Registry... – Spook Apr 22 '13 at 18:09
  • Right click and check properties. If those entries are set as hidden they do not appear in the context menu. – Afzal Apr 22 '13 at 18:46
  • They are not. Right click on the bluetooth icon hangs permanently this window of Explorer, though. – Spook Apr 22 '13 at 18:52
  • Can you post the content of your Desktop.ini file in that particular directory please? – Afzal Apr 22 '13 at 18:52

Chance are that your sendto folder is corrupted. (You can use shell:sendto in Run to locate)

If that is the case, you can fix it using Advanced System Care.

Check the page http://www.iobit.com/help/asc/doc/toolbox.html. Search for IE Helper. IE Helper will help you restore your default context menu.

Caution : Since the OS language is not English, there is a risk that ASC will tamper with your registries regarding contect menu incorrectly.
