A Windows hack to NOT perform

Add Copy To / Move To to the Windows Explorer Right Click Menu :: the How-To Geek.

I tried this hack. It’s also done by several shareware programs if you don’t want to muck with the Windows registry. But it’s really screwed up my file associations in some cases, and made SAS nearly impossible to run from batch. Several operations that should flow smoothly bring up the copy or move to dialogues instead.

For me, the convenience of the commands is not offset by the disruption the hack causes. To undo it, go to the registry settings he talks about in the dialogue and simply delete the Copy To and Move To folders (not just their keys). Leave Send To alone.
