Send To Toys - more options for Send to

Here is a sreen capture showing my current Send to 'box' on a Windows 10 laptop. It contains menu items included with Windows 10, and a bunch of others installed with various programs. Some of these selections are never used.

What if I never plan to use one of these options? Send To Toys allows me to remove it. What if I want to add a menu item to Send to? The developer of Send To Toys provides a way to include Sendings to, the Clipboard (as content or as name), or to a default email address, or to a Folder, or to the Recycle Bin, or to the Command line (Run...), and so on.

Send To Toys

After installation, your Send to menu may look like this [Picture 1, below]. You will have the option to uncheck some of the default items during installation [There are more menu selections than shown here].
