Copy To / Move To in Right-Click Context Options

You can do the following little tweak to get ‘Copy to Folder’ and ‘Move to Folder’ options when you right click on any file. You can then select the destination where you want to copy/ move the file. Pretty convenient.

Create the following Registry Keys:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To

Copy Move Context Menu, pc transfer, file transfer, data transferFor ‘Copy To’ set the value to
{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
For ‘Move To’ set the value to
{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

That’s it.

Now when you right-click on a file or folder, above the ‘Send To’ option, you will see the two new options – “Copy to Folder” and “Move to Folder”
