Customize the Windows 7 or Vista Send to Menu

One of the lesser-used Windows features (at least in my mousing habits) is the Send To option in the Explorer context menu. Right-click on the file and choose Send To to open it in an app, create a shortcut on the Desktop, or copy it to another folder or disk. We can customize our Send To menu to zap files. Now this tab is very less used and a few people know that these option can be customized.
If you have several applications or several folders that you regularly use for images (or indeed other objects, links or filetypes) then why not add those destinations to your 'Send To' menu. We can also group these as applications an folders because.

Add shortcuts to these applications of folders in the hidden "SendTo" folder. The "SendTo" folder which is located in the %APPDATA%MicrosoftWindowsSendTo. Where %APPDATA% means C:Documents and Settings<userid>, It can vary by the location of the Windows and the user id of the windows. You may need to set the options to show hidden and protected operating-system files (Go to Tools -> Folder Options -> View - from a Windows explorer window.). We can use this trick in any Windows operating system like Windows 7, Vista or even Windows XP is compatible to it.

When it's done you can simply pipe any object into your favourite application. Or write it to you favourite folder - or USB drive location or any application that allows you to open a file by using a command line argument.
