Send a shortcut of a file to the Send To Menu
« on: May 18, 2007, 08:41:10 AM »
I'm trying out plenty of software that doesn't install itself in the Start Menu in Vista. This means I can't find them with Find+Run Robot.
So I've added a shortcut that points to my start menu to the Send To Menu. However any program that I use it with is copied to the start menu, I just want a shortcut placed in there, not the whole program itself!

What can I do or is there an even easier way. Your help will solve a long outstanding argument between me and windows :)!

 :-\ I found a temporary workaround until someone comes up with a real solution:
Send to Desktop to create a shortcut
Send the shortcut to the start menu
Delete the shortcut!

After some keyboard wizardry I solved my own problem  :Thmbsup:
Shift-Ctrl-RightClick      ->    Send To     -> Start Menu
