    Question Add Move To Any Folder, in Right Click Context Menu in Windows

    Hello Everybody, in one of my surfing i found this Amazing Page, and ive learnt many priceless tips, BUT there is something that had been bothering me. How can i add "Move to X folder" to Context Menu? you know, if you only want to display "move to" you can use the trick here :

    Add Move To or Copy To to Windows Explorer Right Click Context Menu

    Itd be lovely to just click that link and all those files move there Without clicking.time-saving!

    Just that, Thx for reading!

    Default

    Copy the VBS Code into Notepad and Save as MoveX.vbs

    Const FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG = &H0&
    TargetFolder = "[Enter your Sepecified folder path]"
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    Set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(TargetFolder)
    objFolder.MoveHere WScript.Arguments.Item(0), FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG
    Replace [Enter your Sepecified folder path] with your folder
    Copy MoveX.vbs to C:\Windows\System32 folder

    Now copy below registry code into notepad and save with .reg extension (like movex.reg)

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\movex]
    @="Move to X Folder"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\movex\command]
    @="wscript C:\\Windows\\System32\\MoveX.vbs %l"
    D'click on movex.reg to patch the reg code....n Refresh.

    you'll get Move to X Foldercontext menu under Folders

    Default Works!

    It works !

    But only with folders, i mean if you select individual items it does not work, also if i select many items ... So what do you suggest ??

    ^^ To add the option for files, simply replace "directory" with "*" in above mentioned registry code as following:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\movex]
    @="Move to X Folder"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\movex\command]
    @="wscript C:\\Windows\\System32\\MoveX.vbs %l"

    Default Should i Get my part in the copyright?

    I mean the move to x folder is my idea,i want my copyright!
    XD

    Come on you people! I Know you can tweak win as much as you like! Think,How can i select various items with Your command?

    PD:HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Patricio&#180 ;s You should Change the name of the registry in the part "patricio´s" as you like,if not you´ll have "Move to x folder" in your context menu,instead of move to "Monica´s" or ""as you wish to call your folder" XD!
    Yey

    Wink Ops, I did it again!

    Well i make a mistake in the last reply,and i want to correct it
    In order to change the name of the context menu option,which is added as explained in This post, You´ll have to change next:

    "quote:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\movex]
    @="Move to X Folder"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\movex\command]
    @="wscript C:\\Windows\\System32\\MoveX.vbs %l"

    Put instead of "move to x folder", The name You like to call it! That simple,sorry for not editing last reply,i was late...

    And what Ramesh and Vishal said is FINE,i wasn´t able to send all those files to the Xfolder due to the fact that I was also selecting some system archives(such as my pc,my douments,Etc...) So IT WORKS 100%. Excuse me...XD Happy again.! Now what can i do to change the world....maybe plant a tree XD
