Add "Copy To Folder" and "Move To Folder" to Windows Explorer's Context Menus

Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Registry editor.
  2. Find the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers.
  3. Right-click on that item and select New → Key from the context menu to create a new key.
  4. Name the new key "Copy To Folder."
  5. Assign the value {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} to the new key.

Now, when you right-click a file in Windows Explorer, you'll see the "Copy To Folder" action in the context menu. If you select that, you'll get a dialog where you can choose the destination folder.

Follow the same procedure to add the "Move To Folder" action, using {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13} for the data value.
