  1. Click Start , type the following path and press Enter :


  1. Copy the file Desktop (create shortcut) from the Default user folder and place a copy in your user profile SendTo folder.

  2. The SendTo folder of your user profile can be accessed by typing shell:sendto in the Start-search box.

bad idea to post your email address in an open forum, you will likely be spammed to death I suggest you change your username (My Profile Top of page)

Hello to my new best friend -Fruit Bat /\0/\ Many thanks about your tip re my e-mail address in an open forum Job is done - Hopefully bye-bye to all 'spammers' John...

Username, hmmm, using a made up email address to confuse the spammers. If we all did that the forum would not only be messy looking it would attract the bots to harvest them all and confuse newcomers who may think they have to use an email address for their username :(

....:) would be better just to be called john1945

(I'm just trying to be friendly and helpful)

Dear lotvic... I just joined pc advisors forums yesterday (just a novice). Thanks for your well meaning, and friendly advice. I will change my user name to doncoylyone in the 'My Profile' at the top of the page
