Windows 7 Windows 7. Move to, Copy to, Toolbar icons?

#1
In xp there is a Move To & a Copy To Folder icon in IE.

Does Windows 7 inherit this option?
If so, how to enable or customize to have it appear.

Edit:
Also is it possible to customize this part of IE of in any way?
SS Below.

Most if not all utility/tweak software like 'Windows 7 Manager' and 'Tune-Up Utilities' can do this. You can also do it yourself quite easily by adding a couple of registry keys. I have attached the reg file that you need to add these two context menu handlers.

Hope this helps!

Cool.
TY.

No problem, glad to help. It's always one of the first additions I make to a new install of Windows, makes things a lot easier than cut/paste

If you enable the "Menu Bar" under "Organize - Layout" there are "Move to folder" and "Copy to folder" commands under the "Edit" menu.

That is interesting, Stue. I have used the reg hack to enable the options. But I do not have that option under the the path you have indicated?

I have it under the 'Edit' menu, but I assumed that's because I enabled them myself. Even if they are there by default they still aren't available by right-click which is what I always use :)

Do you mean, Gavin, you still do not have the right click option, even after applying the hack?

If so, I can see it has a small difference to the one I use, but not enough to have spoiled it. However, I do not have the first line in the regfile.
This is mine.

No, sorry I meant I only ever use it from the right-click context menu, much handier! I don't use the reg file, I always used 'Tune-Up' or 'Windows 7 Manager' to make those sort of tweaks amongst others, but I always kept a copy of it around just in case.

Thanks anyway :)

I've never used the "Move to folder - Copy to folder" options. I've always used "Cut/Copy + Paste". Oh well, to each his own huh?

Hey gavin19,
Thanks for the file. I like that option and had it in Xp but missed it in 7.:D
