    Just noticed recently that when I right click anything and scroll down
    to delete, copy, paste or rename if my mouse pointer has to go over
    the sendto option it just pauses there for like 8 seconds before it
    will open up the dropdown menu inside the sendto option. I never use
    it that much and if there is not a way to speed it back up then I
    would just rather remove that option altogether. Any ideas?

    After you right-click, move the mouse pointer outside the menu list and move
    down the side to the item you want, then move the pointer over that item.
    Sounds harder than it is.

    Clean out your "Send To" folder of unwanted entries,
    you probably have too many; that is the cause of the

    After reading all of your posts, it sounds like you're a 14 year old who
    screwed up your dad's PC. Wait 'til he finds out you've been looking at
    boobies on the internet.

    Remove "Send To" option

    The last post sounded like it came from the 14yr old not someone who should be on this board. If you would like to remove the send to option from your right click menu do the flollowing but Export the value first in the event you ever want to get it back though.
    Simply open the registry editor "regedit"
    open the "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT" key
    go way down to "AllFilesystemObjects"
    then to "shellex"
    then to "ContextMenuHandlers"
    then to "Send To"
    double click on the default value in the right hand colum and delete the text value there.
    Your send to option will be gone.
