Why did Vista remove hierarchical SendTo menu items in context menu?



    HUGE functionality that seems to be missing now is the ability to create hierarchical SendTo menu items. If I create a folder in the SendTo folder, I cannot add subfolders or shortcuts to that folder to created a nested, organized set of SendTo items.


    Just for example. 

    (1) I create a folder named "Test" in the folder C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo;

    (2) Copy NotePad.exe's shortcut to C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo\Test;

    (3) Right click on a txt file, then click "Send to", the Test sub menu item not appear!! But the case in XP SP2 is OK!!


    Why did MS remove this functionality? Why?
