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?

  • This is a forum for developers writing Windows software, and that's not what your question is about. That's why there are no (or very few) answers.

  • Where would you suggest to ask this?

  • But Vista is not in the list of products that accept bugs or suggestions.

    About Vista, that's just when we lost the feature.. now it's still missing in Win7.

    Thanks for the reply, maybe i hoped someone with infulence* might just read this.. :P


    *And someone who actually cares to make MS the best OS over crappy glossy Apple interfaces that are currently taking over the world.


    Forget the bling... give me functionality!

  • Is there a will?

    If there is a will, we're half way there...
