Want to right-click a document and copy or move it to another folder? Use this registry hack:

  • Select the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers .
  • Add the subkey Copy To.
  • Select your newly created key and double-click the Default value for the key.
  • Type in, or better yet cut and paste in this value:
    {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
    this gives you the Copy To

  • Select the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers .
  • Add the subkey Move To.
  • Select your newly created key and double-click the Default value for the key.
  • Type in, or better yet cut and paste in this value:
    {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
    this gives you the Move To
This change should be dynamic, you should not have to reboot. Right-click a document. You should see the Copy To and Move To options in the context menu.
