Hi Basem,
I'm not an expert in Chrome, and may not be able to help you, but I'd still like to understand your question better. What exactly do you mean by "chrome context menu"? The term "context menu" means the menu that you get when you do a right click — technically, a secondary click, as opposed to a primary click, which is usually a left click...but left-handers often switch primary and secondary to right and left, respectively. So, on what are you right (secondary) clicking to get the "chrome context menu"? Same question for your comment about the "IE browser". Regards, Joe
Navigate to the page you want.  In the top right corner of Chrome, click the 3 dots -> More Tools -> Create shortcut, type in any name you want for it, and the Create button.  Done
It's not a Send To menu; but, it does create a shortcut on the desktop

Hi Basem,
To be clear, the three-dots icon in the upper right that Davis refers to is the Chrome "normal/standard" menu (opened via a left/primary click), not a "context menu" (opened via a right/secondary click). If that's what you mean, great; if not, let us know what "context menu" you mean. Regards, Joe

You are correct , However what I was looking to achieve is to right click on the page that I am looking at and then see a send to option in order to send it to desktop or other places as in IE. Your suggestion involves 2 steps and getting used to if that's the only solution I guess I have to accept it.

send to menu
In IE (and your picture), you still have to have the menu bar checked and visible or their is no File menu and very few people have it on these days.

Hi Davis,

I don't want to hijack this thread from Basem's issue, but that's an extremely interesting comment for me. I like traditional menus (File, Edit, View, etc.) and always show the Menu Bar when apps offer a choice, such as Adobe Acrobat DC (Pro and Reader), Firefox, IE11, IrfanView, Thunderbird, and the list goes on and on. As a software developer, I'm interested in UI issues, and am wondering if you can point me to any data that supports the "very few people have it on these days" comment or is that largely anecdotal? Thanks much, Joe
Joe,
I have seen almost 150,000 broken PCs in the 42 years I've been fixing these things and even Windows 7 (maybe Vista) started turning off the menu bar in IE several years ago.  Ironically, there are numerous features in IE that I have yet to find in any other browser and the File ->Send To is only one of them.
