Unable To Send Doc To C Drive As Not Showing.


Recommended Posts


I have win 10.

Bit more info:


I got the win10 desktop at beginning of this year.

It seemed logical & easier to take the spare drive (that contained a copy of all my files) out of the old win XP pc, and put in the win 10. This is how  all my files-old & new ones are on the drive known as E drive.

If I click on a file or folder that is on E, the only option that appears in the drop down menu  as a potential drive to 'send to' is the dvd drive.

I don't understand why C is not appearing as an option. C is otherwise visible & usable.  There are no problems if I save a new file to it, or DL to it. :huh:

I had a feeling you had W10. Unfortunately, I have no access to a machine with that OS now - and never will have, so I can't really offer any suggestions.


One question though -somewhere there should be a list of all drives on the machine - is your E drive visible in that list?


Your best hope is that Ghozer or someone with knowledge of W10 and drive mapping &c. spots this. There must be a way of accessing 'E' from 'C' and moving/copying files - it is something I do on a daily basis on my W7 machine between  'C' and 'D' - the two partitions on my HD, and between various external drives.

“Send To” does not show the OS drive by default on any Windows platforms. You can modify the Send To list if required as it just a folder holding the options available. See the followimg article for examples. https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/customize-the-windows-vista-send-to-menu/

Thanks @Happ- I was forgetting that I don't use that option - and confusing things - if I want to move/copy files or folders, I use the 'edit' function on the toolbar, much more flexible.


I assume this functionality is still available in W10, but can't check as I no longer have access to a machine running that OS.

Right click file or folder, > Copy (or Cut to move)
go to C drive (where you want the file or folder) right click in the white-space, > Paste...

or just right click on a new folder and click paste, it will put straight into said folder...
