How To Add New "Send To" Destination (Right Click) in Windows

When transferring files out of your computer in Windows 7 or 8, you will normally right click on the required file, then select the ‘Send to’ option. You can then send the file via Bluetooth, third-party services like Dropbox or Evernote among a few other destinations.

However, some of these destinations may not be what you need or even use at all. Wouldn’t it prefer to customize these destinations as you like?
