Adding SlickEdit to the "send to" option in Explorer
« on: June 12, 2014, 04:39:03 pm »
I managed to break this when updating to 18.0.1.2 64 bit on Windows 7 last night. How do I get SlickEdit back into the options in the "send to" dialog in Explorer?

You can always manually (re-)add a windows shortcut (lnk file) to '<SE install dir>\win\vs.exe' to the '%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo\' directory.

This is my work computer. I can't seem to locate any AppData folder, which makes me suspect IT has hidden it. Are there any other options?

By default, it's a hidden folder, so if you don't show hidden files/folders in Explorer, you won't see it.
Code: [Select]
C:\Users\Arthur.Dent>attrib AppData
    H   I    C:\Users\Arthur.Dent\AppData

C:\Users\Arthur.Dent>
You should be able to cd into it in a command prompt, though.

I got the hidden folders switched on. It's all working again. Thanks for responding.

Or use 'Totalcommander' and easily see system/hidden files ;)
Or (it's a shame that there is no cmd command to create a lnk file):
- create lnk to vs.exe e.g. in 'C:\Temp' and rename it properly to e.g. 'SlickEdit.lnk'
- run 'cmd.exe' (cwd should be 'C:\Users\<you>')
- type 'cd C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo
- type 'move C:\Temp\SlickEdit.lnk .'
