Useful little hack

I've just had to set up a heap of PCs for a few people among them a video server for yours truly. Once the initial teething issues were sorted (cannot convince eXPee to install from a USB device) I set up my video server. As I have been given an iPhone to replace my now defunct Galaxy Note (cry_mouse long story) I decided that I "needed" iTunes (not sure if it is really relevant, but seems to be when the trouble started) so I duly loaded that piece of bloatware. Then I could not work out how to use it! Yep, not very user friendly. Anyway, something broke.

Whenever I was in explorer and used the right click menu every time I scrolled over the "Send To" option that explorer window would freeze up solid. Task manager did not show anything untoward. Anyway I did a quick search on how to get rid of "send to" and it is surprisingly easy. Warning: registry hack coming: there is a tool to download here or you can manually do it which is also explained in the above link.

Does anyone ever use "Send To"? I never have!

Only ever to send a shortcut to the desktop, which I, then, moved elsewhere.

But, then, I never use Windows explorer, really. I just have Total Commander up, which knocks the spots off Explorer. On XP, I could even stop it from even working. Can't seem to do it with W7, though. :(
