Nice idea, but if you can right-click the file (or selection of files), why not simply drag them to the right location on your True Launch Bar?

Besides, I don't think "Send To" items can be further expanded as shown in your image, it's a 'limitation' of explorer... or do you have an existing example of it?

Also keep in mind that this "Send To" menu copies the entire file by default, instead of creating a shortcut... so you'd also need to hold Ctrl+Shift...

In Windows 2000 and XP you can create a shortcut in this directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\SendTo\

And it will appear immediately in your "Send To" menu. So you could point this shortcut to the TLB directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\
(and you can append a TLB menu name to this location, eg. a special drop menu)

For Win9x these path locations are different, and probably somewhere inside your Windows directory...

Windows 7, IE 9.0, Shell 6.0.6000.16386, TLB 4.2.3 beta

Well, as you can see on this graphic, i am talking about a shortcuts. Many applications makes its own shortcuts on desktop or in strat menu, so they can be easyly moved to TLB folder directly (by using this little trick), without opening the TLB directory and subdirectories. I don`t have exeple of that, because i made this picture myselfe Wink Besides, all this could be located somewhere else in context manu, like WinRaR, f.e. makes his own independence program group.
Anyway I think this should be think over Smile
Cheerz.

I just created a folder in my SendTo folder, and my right-click menus "Send To" option did have a folder that opened from the right click menu, as in the example.

To replicate what you want to do, I made a shortcut to the appropriate TLB locations in the SendTo folder I created. It didn't work!

There is a workaround, though. Get a copy of SendTo 1.6 by Trogladite software. Best of all, it's FREE!

Back once again...

Thanks shapeshifter <!--emo&Smile Glad i could make something for you all m8`s Smile

And yes. I made it myselfe to Smile I made a folder in SendTo directory called TLB and it this folder i have put all the shortcuts to my TLB subdirectories. It works like a charm. But it could be greate if some of next relases of TLB could have this feature (with some configuration of it) build in main aplication. What u think Yuri ?

And one thing else. If someone wont to change the look of the main TLB folder in sendto menu, use windows based "change icon" feature and search for tlb.dll located in TLB install directory. Good luck to all.

Hmm.. Yes, you are right, but what for use some third-party products just to make so simple things work ? TLB must evolve and as a more and more advanced product should be able to handle those things that really applys to this great app. Well, indeed, this is my opinion Smile I still think that you should consider that Wink

-----------------------------------------------------------
Comon people, lets push things forward. I think that Yuri might need some more votes, before hi`ll bring this "creature-feature" to life !! Wink

Greetz to all TLB users.

Why? Because *you* want it right?

Sounds like another 'great, stupendous idea' that we discussed before

I must be missing something. If this is already supported natively by Windows, why does Yuri need to write more software to duplicate this functionality?

I should imagine that Yuri has added it to his "Todo" list... The pace at which Yuri works is impressive, and every new release adds a ton of new features some we've asked for, others we haven't...

I wouldn't be surprised if you see this one slipped into a near-future release. Remember... Patience is a virtue!

Finally, can we all be pleasant to each other? :angry:

Well i think you see all what was written above. I didn`t wrote noting that might be offensive and touchy for this numskull...
I think his intension was to stop me from writting `bout impotant things in the right place. I`m not going to do that.
And I`m not going to say anything else about this shamless part of this discussion.
