  2. Open another Explorer window with the `SendTo' directory open under the 'Documents and Settings' folder for your user name (the 'View hidden files and folders' attribute needs to be set to 'Allow' in the 'Folder Options/View' tab).

  4. Release the mouse button and select the option to create a shortcut.
