Put Notepad in the 'Send To' Menu

If you use Notepad a lot, there is an easy and quick way to send a file to it. Just put Notepad in your 'Send To' menu.

Here's how:
  • Right click the Start menu.
  • Click Explore.
  • In Windows Explorer's left pane, expand the Documents and Settings folder (usually on the C: drive).
  • Click the folder for your user account name.
  • Click the Sendto folder.
  • In the right pane, right-click and select New, then select Shortcut.
  • Create a shortcut to Notepad.exe by browsing to the file location in the Create Shortcut Wizard (it should be located in the system root folder, usually named WINDOWS, usually on the C: drive).
Now when you right click a file and select Send to, Notepad will show up in the menu.
