    To get to the SendTo folder, you’ll need to open up an Explorer window, and then paste in the following to the address bar:

    Code:
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo



    You should now see a bunch of shortcuts

    Let’s say you wanted to add an item to the Send To menu to open files in Notepad. You could just drag a shortcut to Notepad into this folder, or create a new shortcut. Now you can see the new Notepad item in the menu

    Alternatively, you could also just delete the ones that you dont need that some programs add.

    SendTo SendTo ... nice one :icecream:

    anybody wants to remove SendTo Drives like earlier pic drive D;E;F ... can be done with regtweak

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDrivesInSendToMenu"=dword:00000001
    may need to reboot to take effect.

    by "Load" I think you are meaning "Close the CD or DVD Tray" ... that is not a normal Microsoft system entry, that's why you only have "Eject".

    some of your friends that have the "load or close" right click will have installed software such as Elby Clone Dvd or Nero, or something similar that has a shell extension that would have added that function.

    There is not really an easy way to get that function without installing software that includes it.

    If you want it badly, an option would be to download nircmd and drop it in your system32 folder (nircmd.exe has many functions, one of which is closing CD/DVD drives) ... I think it works in 32bit & 64bit.

    then you would need to add right click to registry like this:-

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\Drive.CDROM\shell]
    @="none"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\Drive.CDROM\shell\closetray]
    @="C&lose Tray"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\Drive.CDROM\shell\closetray\command]
    @="nircmd.exe cdrom close \"%1\""
    @triggat ...

    I don't think Winrar would work in SendTo .... the 7zip compress and Split things I have in system32 are special custom files I got ( from RyanVM forums a while ago, if memory serves me) ... pretty sure they 32bit only ... if you are 32bit let me know and I'll upload.
