I frequently right click on files and use the SendTo function to
quickly move files to convenient folders. By default, Microsoft
includes certain folder in the SendTo list but it is easy to add your
favaorite folders to the SendTo.
To do this, click Start>>Run. In the
text box, enter "SendTo" (without the quotes).
Click OK. The SendTo folder will open.
In the SendTo folder, click File>>New>>Shortcut.
Click the Browse button and find the folder in
which you are interested. Click it and click OK.
Click Next and type a name for the shortcut. Click finish. Repeat for
each folder you want to add.
The Send To option is used to move files around. If you want to put a
file in another folder, right-click the file and select Send To. Then
click the folder where you want to place the file. That will put a copy
of the file in the second folder, while leaving the original in its

right-click the file and click Mail Recipient. This will open your
e-mail software with the file already attached. Or you can create a
shortcut on the desktop. Click Desktop (create shortcut).
For some added functionality, check out Send To Toys, a free program.
It streamlines the process of adding folders or drives,
and adds more places to the Send To list.
we are starting to see so many switchers moving over to the Mac, I
thought I would mention a little troubleshooting tip. If your Mac
starts doing weird things, it's time to spring into action and give it
a little first aid, Disk First Aid that is. In Mac OSX, Disk First Aid
is a free utility program that comes with the operating system.
However, Disk First Aid can't run on the the startup disk so you will
have to boot from your Mac OSX install disk. Just insert the disk,
restart the computer and hold down the "C" key during the boot process.
Once you have restarted, click on the Installer menu, then choose Disk Utility. Once the Disk Utility opens, click on the First Aid button, then click on the drive you want to repair, click the Repair Disk
button and let it fix your problems. It's not a bad idea to run First
Aid periodically, especially before and after installing new software
or doing an update.
