The "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option from the <Send To> options is missing on my machine. I have run the command rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo. When I run the rundll32 zipfldr.dll, RegisterSendTo I get the message "Error in zipfldr.dll, Missing entry:registersendto". I've also copied the shortcut from the Windows <Send To> to the Users <Send To> which hasn't worked either. Anybody know of other solutions?

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but I do recall seeing a freeware 3rd party program that lets you ADD a user-specified target destination/program to the "SendTo" context menu item. Basically, it lets you "Send" an item to anything that can handle it.

I'm thinking if you can't "fix" it, you might simply "fool" it to make it seem like you're adding a new target instead of restoring one that already should be there.

It was on majorgeeks. I'll try to find the exact program name, but thought you could look too and maybe find it faster if you're interested (It can take me a long time to research stuff due to vision problems...some days are worse than others and today my vision is pretty f'd up.).

Sounds like a good start, I'll look into it. Thanks john.

Finding it turned out to be easy. Heh. It helps when you suddenly remember the name.
I've never actually used it, and please note that it's pretty old...so either it's worked great for years or...

I also have no idea how it might interact with Win7, but I would imagine it's got to be fairly straight-forward programming.

SendToAny extends the Windows Explorer 'Send To' context menu with all known links. This is accomplished by synchronising the Send To Menu with the Start Menu, Desktop and Quick Launch Menu.
SendToAny allows any file (including files with no filename extension and files with a reserved extension) to be sent to any application, regardless of file-type association, or an applications' registration status.
SendToAny resolves all types of links, including Microsoft Installer (MS Office, Adobe Acrobat, etc etc), which are normally invisible to the Send To menu.


Or, could it be as simple as "adding" the target folder via something like this?

Ah, no, unfortunately that won't work then. It's just a script for what I did by copying the shortcut from the Windows <Send To> to the Users <Send To>. Back to the drawing board.
