Fix Windows 10 Send To Only Shows Bluetooth Issue

One issue with Windows 10 which can occur when using apps that manage Bluetooth devices and do device transfers, is they can corrupt your Windows Send To function menu so that it may only show Send To Bluetooth and not list any of the previous menu items.  Such as missing the Windows Send To Desktop (Create Shortcut) or Send To Compressed Folder…etc.  You basically would have no options with send to anymore.

See the image below as an example where Send to only shows Bluetooth device.  You may also be missing send to compressed folder, or missing send to documents or other menu items in the Send To in Windows 10.

If you find yourself in this situation, the fix is quick and easy to restore your send to menu options so you can restore the send to create shortcut and restore the send to compressed folder menu options.  First you open up your Windows Run program, click Windows + R or simply search for Run

Type in shell:sendto as the command

This will open up your SentTo folder and if you see a Bluetooth listing that has 0kb, this is the offending menu corruptor.  Delete the Bluetooth item that has 0KB listed.

You will be asked to confirm you want to delete it, once you do your Windows 10 Send To menu items will be restored to their original item list.

This same solution may work and solve the Windows Sent To Bluetooth as the only option for Windows 8 and 8.1 as well, I only was able to test and confirm this is how to solve it with Windows 10.  So again, if you have an issue where Send to only shows Bluetooth and lists no other options then remember to look for that corrupted Bluetooth icon in the Send To folder shortcut.  So this will solve the issue if you have no Send to Create Shortcut in Windows 10, or No Send to Compressed Folder in Windows 10 as well as any other send to items that are missing.
