How to Add Move To Folder in Windows 11

Windows 11 doesn’t have Move To folder or Copy To folder options in the context menu by default.

But you can add it if you wish, and let’s see how.

Open Registry Editor. I suggest you take the Registry backup before proceeding.

Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > AllFilesystemObjects > shellex.

Right-click on the ContextMenuHandlers and select New > Key.

Follow these steps if you want to add the Move To folder option:

Provide the name you prefer, and press the Enter key.

On the right pane, you can see “Default.” Double it and provide the following: {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

Hit the OK button, and that’s it. Beneath, you’ll see how to use this option.

Follow these steps if you want to add the Copy To folder option:

Provide the name you like, and press the Enter key.

On the right pane, you can see “Default.” Double it and provide the following: {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

Hit the OK button, and that’s all. Beneath, you’ll see how to use this option.

How to Use These Options

Right-click on the item you want to move or copy and hit Show more options.

Select the Move To folder or Copy To folder option depending on your wish.

Now, select the folder where you’d like to move or copy the item and hit the Copy or Move button.

That’s all.

Notes:

  • Remember, these options work for multiple items too.
  • If you want to remove these options, you must delete the key you’ve created in the above steps.
