Usage of Send To option in Microsoft Windows

I believe almost everyone uses the Send To option. Most of the times you need to copy some important files to a specific location like a specific folder or drive. So you need to go through a long path or you need to switch to many windows and finally after browsing and opening so many windows you are able to do it. Instead you can use the “Send To” option and copy your needful files to the required specific folder or drive. I am mentioning about the send to option in Microsoft Windows.
