Use your Send To: command to send documents directly to your home directory or any mapped drive you have setup. Call it a quick send but once you right click, send to and you see your home drive or network shared drive you'll appreciate the time saving.

Send to your Mapped Drives using the Send To:

This is a time saver if you have a Z or H drive setup by your administrator. 

Z:\ or H:\ are often used as "Home" directories. 

I used to devide them by Remote user directory home and Local LAN account home drive. 

This helped keep them from putting to much information on the external remote drive folder. Both drive paths are on the LAN but only H:\ in terminal server or RDP remote desktop.

How to add your Z:\ drive to your Send To menu list.

1. Click on Start
2. Click on Run or from the search command line in Vista or Windows 7 type:
shell:sendto
3. Click on File > New > Short Cut.
4. Type the drive letter like this Z:\ then click next.
5. Name the short cut something simple like, "My Z Drive"
6. Click Finish

Now anytime you would like to save a document using the sendto menu you can save it directly
to your Z:\ drive.

What is your Z:\ Drive?
This is where you should save large documents that need to be accessed rarely.
This will speed up your login time by not loading hundreds of megabits of files.
But it will allow you to access them anytime you need them.
