Windows Vista Shell Commands – SendTo
Think of Vista’s Shell as a special engine room. To that thought add the concept ‘command’, as in command line, or ‘dos box’. Now all that you need for action is the name of the folder object, for example shell:sendto.
Get Started with Shell:SendTo
If you right-click a file, from the drop-down menu you have the option to SendTo a select group of folders. Now, you may wish to add more locations to this SendTo list. Strangely, normal explorer techniques won’t give you access to the SendTo folder, this is a job for Vista’s command, shell:sendto
Click on the Vista Start button
Click in the Start Search dialog box
Type -> shell:sendto
Result: Vista launches the Windows Explorer shell at the SendTo folder. You are now in a position to add more shortcuts to the SendTo folder.
The command Shell:xyz acts as a shortcut to the folder you wish to find quickly, you just have to remember the key names to substitute for xyz.
Incidentally, my friend ‘Barking’ Eddie has been amused by this shell command:
Avoid the Space Trap
Shell:sendto is correct – no space
Shell: sendto is wrong – you don’t need a space
Shell :sendto does not work either, there must be no spaces.
Are the shell commands case sensitive? No not all, just avoid that space. These Vista Shell:Commands are merely a specialist way of accessing key folders. You could find the very same information through Windows Explorer or by launching the Control Panel and drilling down through the sub-menus.

SolarWinds’ Orion performance monitor will help you discover what’s happening on your network. This utility will also guide you through troubleshooting; the dashboard will indicate whether the root cause is a broken link, faulty equipment or resource overload.
What I like best is the way NPM suggests solutions to network problems. Its also has the ability to monitor the health of individual VMware virtual machines. If you are interested in troubleshooting, and creating network maps, then I recommend that you try NPM now.
