I got this working via File Explorer to send a copy of an image to a
particular folder.

But there is no "Send To" when I am surfing thru images in "Photo" or
"Photo Viewer".

Can this be inserted, or is there some other way?

Firstly create a shortcut for the folder.
New/shortcut - on desktop.
In the target box put the address, something like this;
C:\Users\Ed\Pictures\ZMiscellany\2020

Next hit WinKey+R, and enter;
"Shell:sendto" without quotes. Hit OK, and drop the shortcut in with the
rest.

Also the technique for any editing, or removal, of existing Send-to
shortcuts.

Good luck.

By Photo Viewer I assume you mean a Win 10 app. Contact the developer or
use a different program to view your pictures.

I use IrfanView and can select 14 different locations to copy/move files to.

The Metro "Photo" App doesn't seem to have a right-click context.

The Windows 7 style "Windows Photo Viewer" does have a context menu.
But it's not populated with Explorer Shellex stuff.

[W7 and W10 version of "Windows Photo Viewer" appear to be the same]

rundll32 photoviewer.dll, imageview_fullscreen C:\remote.jpg # launch

And I can't find any examples of anyone modifying it.

Windows Photo Viewer does have other controls.

There is a "Copy" option in the right-click menu.

Thank you, I have made a folder in the SendTo folder and I can work
this OK from File Explorer.

But I can't access it from the 'Windows Photo Viewer' nor 'Photo' full
screen to send or copy to that SendTo folder.

I can 'Make a Copy' to any specified folder from the viewers above
from the File Menu at the top left of the screen from the viewers, but
annoyingly I have to select the destination folder every time I copy
an image; that folder cannot be made a short-term default. Still,
it's better than nothing.

Thanks this works OK when using the F8 key.

There might be some other program here. Faststone maybe.

Thank, I downloaded the Faststone and am checking it out. The
Irfanview seems good though.

What do you need in an image/photo viewer?
o Each image editor does different things better than the others.

For example...
o Nothing is faster than Irfanview, for example, for viewing photos/images.

Irfanview can do many quick edits & batch operations but it's not a "photo
editor" nor an "image editor" (they're considered different in key ways).
a. viewer
b. image editor
c. photo editor
d. artwork creation
etc.

I have many of the most recommended installed on my system, e.g.,
cd c:\app\editor\pic dir /b
artweaver
faststone
fotor
fotosketcher
ghostscript
gimp
imagemagick
inkscape
irfanview
jsware_crop
krita
morph
ms_paint
paint.net
paintshoppro_freeware
paintstar
photodemon
photoshop_freeware
photopad
pinta
vicman_last_good_version
xnview

That doesn't count the vector and/or cad editors, e.g.,
cd c:\app\editor\cad dir /b
blender
draftsight
freecad
fusion360
inkscape
sketchup

For more information, there's rec.photo.digital
o http://tinyurl.com/rec-photo-digital
--
If I had to recommend just _one_ image editor (for what I do a lot, which
is editing screenshots with callouts, texts, and arrows), it would be
Paint.NET (even as I hate having to install .NET Framework for it).

That's to be laid at the feet of the programs themselves. They don't
include the ability. Nor can I envisage M$ ever making it so.

As far as I can gather from what you've told us, this is what I'd do;
make the view option of the relevant photo folders "large"; and then
surf them with WinExplorer.

Can these 'Large' be made even larger?

While viewing a folder containing photos in Windows file explorer, you can
press and hold the control key and then spin the mouse wheel to
progressively enlarge (Extra large icons) or make smaller (Small icons).

You could also set the thumbnail size using a registry key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Exp lorer

If "ThumbnailSize" isn't there, create a new 32-bit DWORD and set the value
to a number between 32 and 256 (larger is bigger).
