Alright, I went to add notepad and wordpad to my Send To folder like I always have for each of the previous operating systems. Thanks to the “simplified” (and admittedly cleaner) users folder and the disappearance of settings, I could not find the way to customize the Send To command. A search in the Vista help produces basically nothing.
I finally found the solution. Just enter in the following in your power search box (Start -> “Start Search”).
Once the folder is opened just drag shortcuts of any program you would like to appear there into that folder. Not as easy as WindowsXP is it?
