Add COPY TO and MOVE TO to the Windows 10 right-click menu

As mentioned, Windows 10 allows you to right-click on a file and both cut and copy and select the destination at once. In fact, by adding the COPY TO and MOVE TO options to the right-click menu, this interesting feature becomes available.

Of course, this feature is hidden and in the default mode, such an operation is not possible. To enable this function we must use the Windows registry. But since the registry is very, very sensitive and a mistake in its structure can damage Windows; Be very careful to follow the steps. I recommend that you back up your registry before making any changes .

  • Open the Start menu and search for regedit and then open;

 

  • Follow the path to the left of the registry editing window;

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ AllFilesystemObjects \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers

  • Right-click on “ContextMenuHandlers”;

 

  • From the menu that opens New and then click on the key;
