Comparer is a nifty tool that allows you to compare files using a simple interface however i wanted to make it even simpler using the Send to menu in Windows XP. What this guide will show is how to create a Comparer entry in the Window Send To menu so that you can compare files. It's actually quite simple to do but maybe someone doesn't know, therefore i made this guide.
1.- Open "My PC" and then click on "Tool" and then click again in "Folder Options" , go to the "View" tab and make sure that the "Show hidden files and folder" option is selected and then click "Ok".
2.- Go to the C: disk and go inside the "Documents and settings" folder, then go inside the folder with your name and then finally enter the folder labeled "Send to".
3.- Right click in a blank space and in the context menu select "New" -> "shortcut", a Wizard should appear asking for the location of an item, click on "Browse" and navigate to where Comparer's executable is, then click next and change the shortcut's name if you want. finally click finish and you should be able to see Comparer in the Send To menu.
Yeah it's that simple, anyway you can use this guide to place any other program in the Send To menu.
