SkyDrive for Windows has made the work of storing and backing up important files to the cloud much simpler. The client lets you easily manage your SkyDrive account right from the desktop. All you have to do is right-click a small cloud icon in the system tray (when the application is running) to open your SkyDrive folder and manage storage from there.
If you already have it installed on your computer and are already using it, you will agree that the SkyDrive client is of great use. It lets you drag-and-drop a file to Skydrive to sync the file to your account. But, wouldn’t it be great if you could backup a large number of files by simply transferring to your account via ‘Send to’ menu.
We have already seen how you can add or remove any item to the Send To context menu. You can do so manually or simply use freeware SendToSendTo. Although pressing Shift key and right-clicking will offer you many more hidden entries, you will not see SkyDrive. But using the same method, you can also add the SkyDrive shortcut to the ‘Send to’ menu so that you can send large number of files in a snap.
Add SkyDrive shortcut to the ‘Send to’ menu
Open C:\Users\Username directory. Look for the SkyDrive folder.
When you find it, right-click on it and from the menu choose ‘Create Shortcut’.
Next, press Win+R in combination to bring up the Run dialog box. In it type ‘shell:send to’ and press Enter.
This will open the SendTo folder directly.
Then, copy the shortcut that we created in step 1 and paste it in the SendTo menu. That’s it!
You will now find the SkyDrive shortcut appearing in the SendTo menu, whenever you right-click a file. Take a look at the screen-shot below.
Do note that whenever you are planning to send the files to a SkyDrive subfolder, you will have to manually drag-and-drop the file.
