Sorry for the incomplete post--I accidentally pressed "Post" too soon. :( I'll try again.

I have a Win98 computer and want to add a drive or folder to the SendTo menu such that I copy a file to it *always* instead of moving if on the same drive. How do I do that?

Hold CTRL key when doing the file operation.

Harry,
I have a Win32 C program that calls a console app before exiting,
and I want to be able to read the console app's output before exit
and need to get it to pause. How do I do that?
I have a car and want to install a radio in it, how do I do that ?

There are several ways to execute a program from within another one. Each
one needs a different solution.

Its even possible that the method you are using already has a "wait" flag
defined. I suggest you look up the documentation for the function you've
used first.

On my XP machine (do not have w98 handy anymore) I added a shortcut to my C:
drive, and did a "SendTo" from my temp folder (also on C:) to it. The file
was copied, even though the source and destination drives where the same ...

In other words, how come you think the files are anything other than copied
? (IOW, your post is still missing information).

IIRC, it didn't do that the last time I added a folder to the SendTo menu. :(
