The Mail Recipient option from the Send To menu makes it very easy for users to send over their files and folders to other parties on their computers. If you’re someone who actively uses this feature and notice it to have gone missing, it would be bothering you. In this article, we will look at how you can fix the ‘Mail Recipient’ option being missing from the ‘Send To’ menu in Windows 11/10.

Fix Mail Recipient missing from Send to in Windows 11/10

Several varying causes can cause the Mail Recipient option to disappear, the most common ones being a corrupted Bluetooth device file or the Email Client not being set as the default app. We have the following suggestions to make:

    Create Mail Recipient in the SendTo folderCopy the Mail Recipient shortcut from the default user menuDelete 0 kb Bluetooth device file from the Send to Folder

Send to Mail Recipient Missing

1] Create Mail Recipient in the SendTo folder

microsoft, windows, microsoft
The first and most effective method to fix the absence of the Mail Recipient option is to create a new Mail Recipient in the SendTo folder. Here’s how you can do that:

    Open the Run command on your PC with the Windows+R key combinationIn the dialog box that opens, type shell:SendTo and hit Enter to open the SendTo folder in ExplorerFrom the menu tab at the top of this window, select View > Show > select File Name Extensions and Hidden IconsNow, right-click on the empty area in this window, select New and click on Text DocumentName this document as Mail Recipient.MAPIMail. Make sure that this file’s extension isn’t saved as .txt

Now, check if you can find the Mail Recipient option in your Send to folder.

2] Copy the Mail Recipient shortcut from the default user menu

    Open File Explorer on your PC with the Windows + ‘E’ key combinationEnter the following path on the address bar:
C:UsersDefaultAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsSendTo
    Here you’ll find a Mail Recipient option. Select to copy it and paste it to the following location:
C:UsersUsernameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsSend to

Replace ‘Username’ here with your default username and check if the issue persists.

3] Delete 0 kb Bluetooth device file from the Send to Folder

microsoft, windows, microsoft
If your Bluetooth connection got corrupted earlier, there is a chance of facing this issue on your computer. In that case, you need to remove the Bluetooth shortcut, which is 0 KB in size. This is nothing but a previously connected Bluetooth device shortcut. Although this is very rare, the shortcut can consume the space of Compressed (zipped) folder in the Send to menu, and create the conflict accordingly. Therefore, if you find an item named Bluetooth with 0 KB in size, you need to remove it. While doing this, you should not delete any item that has a minimum size of 1 KB and more.

    Open the Run command box and enter the same ‘shell:SendTo’ command as you’d entered in the first processThis will open the same Send To folder as before. Here, you’ll see a Bluetooth app folderRight-click on it and select Delete

Reboot your computer and check if the Mail Recipient icon now appears on the Send To menu.If you want to make further customizations to your Send to menu, you can Edit, Remove or Add items to Send To menu. Adding more options for file transfer or moving the currently available ones is possible. Simply run the ‘shell:SendTo’ command to open the SendTo folder, and create new shortcuts in this directory. This can be done by dragging and dropping apps or clicking on the blank space > New > New Shortcut. You can read more about it here.

Open Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTAllFilesystemObjectsshellexContextMenuHandlersSend To

Now on the right side, double-click on the (Default) value and delete the text that is displayed, leaving the “Value data” box empty

Click OK and exit.

For your information, the Value data on my Windows is {7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}. Make a note of yours, just in case you wish to add it back later.

We hope that this guide was able to help you bring the Mail Recipient option back to the Send to menu.
