How to Add “Copy To” & “Move To” Shortcut to Right-Click Menu in Windows – How to copy or move files to other locations in Windows? Most of us use the “copy” or “cut” command in the context menu and then paste the file to the target location. In order to speed up the file copy/move operation, you can add a “copy to” or “move to” shortcut in the Windows right-click context menu. This is a hidden feature available in Windows 10/8.1/8/7, which can be enabled using a registry hack.
