How to add Copy_to and Move_to RightClick menu options

I like to use Copy To and Move To options of the Explorer Edit menu /instead of Copy-Paste files./

By default, these options are not included in Right mouse menu when  files or folders are selected.

How to enable them:

Here is a little registry tweak:

Open Registry Editor /Start button –> Run –> Regedt32 –> OK/

Browse down and find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers key.

Right click on ContextMenuHandlers –> New –> Key

In the inputbox, type {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} and press OK.

This is for CopyTO enabled.

Then use F5 to refresh the registry.

Same way /ContextMenuHandlers –> New –> Key/

In the inputbox, type {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} and press OK.

This is for MoveTo enabled.

Again, press F5 to refresh.

Your right mouse menu over a file / folder selected now has these two useful options.

You can download http://obama.110mb.com/programs/cop_to.zip and http://obama.110mb.com/programs/move_to.zip and use to edit registry faster – just doubleclick .reg files.
