You all know that Google Drive, the largest cloud storage is now available for windows. In our previous post, I have explained about how to install Google Drive on your windows PC. Now you may probably know that you can add files to your Google Drive by simply drag and drop method. But in case of adding larger files to Google Drive, drag and drop method is a bit riskier. So the best way to send larger files is by adding Google Drive to send to menu in Windows and using it.
Step To Add Google Drive To Send To Menu:
Step 1: To get started, first you need to create a shortcut for Google Drive. To create a shortcut go to C:\Users\Kudometrics (here Kudometrics is the username, replace it with your username), and locate Google Drive.
Note: This method will store the files in the root folder. To store the files in the sub folder you need to manually drag and drop the files to the sub folder.
Step 2: Right click on the Google Drive folder and select “Create Shortcut”. This will now create a shortcut for Google Drive on your desktop.
Step 3: Now open the Run box by simultaneously pressing Win + R on your keyboard. Type shell:sendto in the Run Box and hit “Enter”.
Step 4: This will now open up the Send To folder as shown in the screenshot below.
Step 5: Now you have to copy the Google Drive shortcut file (Step 2) and paste it in the Send To folder.
That’s it. You have successfully added Google Drive to windows send to menu. From now onwards you can easily send any kind of files and folders to Google Drive easily by simply right clicking on the file and selecting Send To -> Google Drive.
