How to add item in menu

Post by Chriske » Tue Jul 17, 2018 11:39 am

Hi,
Linux Mint 18.3 Xfce - Using VirtualBox / W7
From within Linux I like to copy W7 files to a certain location, say a USB stick.
Opening filemanager I locate and rightclick a file. In that menu I have different options. Copy, paste... I also get 'Send to'. In that 'Send to' I have a few options whereto I can send that selected file to.
Well, now my question : How can I add a extra location to that list. As it is now I can copy that file directly to that stick(root), But I'd like to copy that file not to the root of that stick but to a directory onto that stick.

Maybe this cannot be done, because it is part of the programming of the OS...?
