That's great and I understand how to add selections to my send to menu but I don't want to have to go to 200 computers to add it to everyone elses. How to do it using group policy is the real question. Thanks for your response

I don't think you can do that with Group Policy but you can do it with a logon script.  Create the shortcut you want and put it in a public folder on the network.  Create a bat file that does an xcopy command to copy that shortcut to the location of the sendto  for Xp it would be something like c:\documents and settings\all users\sendto.  You will have to use quotes around the file location to account for teh spaces in the address.  And the path will be different depending on vista or xp machine.  I know its not what you are looking for but best I can think of.

Using this suggestion i just added to our login script:

set src=\\domain.loc\SYSVOL\domain.loc\scripts\UserShortcutLinks\SendTo
if not exist "%userprofile%\SendTo\Shortcut1.lnk" copy "%src%\Shortcut1.lnk" "%userprofile%\SendTo"
if not exist "%userprofile%\SendTo\shortcut2.lnk" copy "%src%\Shortcut2.lnk" "%userprofile%\SendTo"

I could not get \all users to work at all.

Jim,

Thanks for the points.  I think chilids deserved something for the suggested direction.

I'm not sure I understand the comment you put - "Not very good at scripts".  Was there a problem with the code I offered?
