Add a "Copy To" option to the right-click menu :-))

In Windows, in the contextual right-click menu there is a "Send To" option but no option for "Copy To". The "Copy To" option exists, but it is disabled by default so that it doesn't show up when you right-click. If you want to add the "Copy To" menu back, you can do so with a registry hack.

BUT BEFORE EDITING ANY THING IN REGISTRY EDITOR U NEED TO BACK UP THE REGISTRY
To enable the "Copy To" option,
->run the regedit program by going to Start
-> Then Run,
->and entering regedit and hitting Enter.
Once the registry editor is open, navigate to the
->HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT + AllFilesystemObjects + shellex + ContextMenuHandlers section.
You'll see the "Send To" entry there as an entry under this.
Right-click on the "ContextMenuHandlers" entry and select New > Key from the list.

Name the new key Copy To. In the right pane, you will see an entry called “Default”, double click on thus entry and enter a value of
->{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} (yeah, the braces and everything).
Once done editing, close the registry editor.
