    Default Tweaking the "Send to" menu - How to hide drive letters

    Does anybody know how to get the items in the red box out of the Send to menu? They are not in the Shell folder, but I would like to get rid of them and put some more of my own targets into the Shell folder - but I don't want the right click menu to get too big.

    JR, thank you for the link. At first glance it explains how to ADD items to the sendto menu. That's the easy part and I do that all the time. Problem is how to delete the stuff inside the red box. The items above the red box appear in the sendto shell folder and can easily be handled, but the ones in the red box do not show up.
    But I will study your link further. Maybe they have "hidden" the solution and I did not see it whilst "speed reading" - LOL.

    I just went through my PC and found 'Send to toy' application and it seems you can't remove any drives. But maybe someone else can help as I have hit a wall, sorry bro. JR

    Thank you James. I knew it was somewhere but could not find it. This should do the trick.

    I'm glad to have found it; there's also an XP version here on his XP site:
