How do i add a printer to my "Send To" menu?

The "Send To" menu is available in Windows when you right-click on a file (document, spreadsheet, picture, etc.) and is a handy tool for sending e-mail attachments, sending files to a CD burner or to send a file to any other part of your computer (Desktop, zip file, etc.) Adding your printer to the list will allow you to print documents without having to first open the associated application (Open My Documents, right-click on the desired document, click the Send To option then select your printer to have it quickly print a copy of the document.)

To add your printer to the Send To menu, do the following:

• Click on the Start button, then on Run and type sendto and hit Enter

• Once the SendTo window is open, you can add or delete any item from your system

• If you want to remove an item, simply highlight it and press the delete key

• If you want to add your default printer to the list, go to the Control Panel and open the Printer and Faxes option Click and drag whichever printer you would like to send files to from the "Printer and Faxes" window to the "SendTo" window.
