How to Restore Missing “Desktop (create shortcut)” Item in Send To Menu in Windows XP, Vista and 7

To Restore Missing “Desktop (create shortcut)” Item in Send To Menu in Windows XP, Vista and 7 Please follow the following steps.


1. Type "shell:sendto" in RUN dialog box and press Enter. It'll open "Send To" folder.

2. Now right-click on blank area in the folder and select "New -> Text document". It'll create a textfile with the name "New Text Document.txt". Rename this file and set its name to "Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink".

3. That's it. Now you'll get "Desktop (create shortcut)" option back in "Send To" menu.

NOTE: Make sure "Hide extensions for known file types" option is disabled in "Folder Options", otherwise the second step might not work and the text file will not convert in desktop shortcut item.


This method will only work in Windows XP. It'll not work in Vista and 7:

1. Type following command in RUN dialog box:

regsvr32 sendmail.dll

2. It'll re-create the missing "Desktop (create shortcut) option in "Send To" menu.
