Windows: Copy To & Move To on right-click


This was some cool stuff that was really useful to me. I used to do a lot of transfer between HDDs and folders deep inside. This registry entry gave me the ‘Copy To’ and ‘Move To’ options on right click of my mouse, on any file or folder.

And Don’t worry! Its totally reversible, if you hate it. But i am pretty sure that you are gonna love it.

Step 1 : Open Notepad

Step 2 : Paste the following code in it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]
@=”{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}”

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
@=”{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}”

Step 3 : Save the file as “CopyNMove.reg” – including the double chords (“)

Step 4 : Double-click the file. It will ask for your permission to edit registry.

Step 5 : Click OK.

Step 6 : It will show a success message. Click OK. Voila. Its done.

Just in case if you feel that you want to remove these options from the right click menu. Do the following:

Step 1 : Open Notepad

Step 2 : Paste the following code in it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]

Step 3 : Save the file as “DelCopyNMove.reg” – including the double chords (“)

Step 4 : Double-click the file. It will ask for your permission to edit registry.

Step 5 : Click OK.

Step 6 : It will show a success message. Click OK. Voila. Its done.

Hope you find it useful.
