I just saw this blog post and I thought I would share it with all of you.  It add this to your right-click context menu in Windows Explorer:

Works in Vista & XP, check it out!

Adding Copy To and Move To functionality to the Windows Explorer right-click menu starts with the finding the key in the Windows Registry file. (Be sure to back up the Registry file before you begin.)

  • Start Regedit by navigating Start | Run and typing regedit in the dialog box.
  • Navigate to this key in the Registry file:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    Note: The Send To key is already there.
  • Right-click on the ContextMenuHandlersfolder and select New | Key to add a new key.
  • Give it the name Copy To and then double-click the (Default) value of the new key's right-hand pane.
  • Type in this code as the new data:
    {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
  • Right-click on the ContextMenuHandlersfolder and select New | Key to add a new key.
  • Give it the name Move To and then double-click the (Default) value of the new key's right-hand pane.
  • Type in this code as the new data:
    {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
  • Click OK and close Regedit
  • Copy To and Move To should now be available options on the right-click context menu in Windows Explorer.
