Hi,

I would like to copy a single file (everytime the same one) from its original location to the folder I browse. Instead of opening folders I would like to do it with a single click. Is it possible to add it to a right-click menu?

Although for XP, but you could make it work for Windows 8:

Or use the "right click enhancer" program:

This works on Windows 7 or 8
1. Hit Win-R (Windows Key + R) and in the run dialog.
2. Past in this text: "shell:sendto" and press enter.

This should take you to a folder in your user profile (%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo).

3. Drag and drop a shortcut to the target folder you wish to copy the file to.

Now you can just: [1] Right Click the File, [2] Select "Send To" then select the folder shortcut you created and a copy of the file will be sent to that folder.

Use TypeItIn and you can do almost anything with one single left click.
