Oh, did you want to know how to do it?

Okay, here we go:

As learned from previous experience, you are using Windows XP, (it's different for Windows 9x & ME) so just open up Windows Explorer (or My Computer, or your navigator of choice), and navigate to your main hard drive (C: probably), then to \Documents And Settings

Then, find your login name here.  Whatever folder doesn't say "Administrator", "All Users", "Default User" (Note: You can go here and do the following steps to put it in any subsequent users you create), "LocalService", or "NetworkService".  Then open that folder.  Then open SendTo.  Put a shortcut to the program you want to "send to" in this folder, and it should appear immediately in the "send to" menu.

Strangely enough, it's never occurred to me to use the Send To command to copy/move files (I don't even know which of those operations it does).  But I know there is an "A:" in the Send To menu, so I knew it was possible -- just never thought about it.  Clever use of the OS.  Would it also be possible to just put a shortcut to the folder on the desktop and drag them in there?

Holy smokes! Finals just got over for you?  I must be spoiled.  Finals got over for me May 13th! (In time, I am glad to say, for Star Wars Episode III :))

yea, it really sucked, we were supposed to be done actually by liek the 15th, but everything kept getting pushed up due to all these rediculous snow days. and when i say rediculous, i mean we didnt have any snow. they pretty much just called them at random. so were not getting out untill tomorrow, but noones going. today is make up periods for finals, no actual classes, and tomorrow is a minimum day, no ones teaching. and since grades are mailed, theres absolutely no reason to go in
