    I am looking for a way to alter the options that are presented when I use 'control-click'. I wish to add a folder to the list. Is this possible and if so, how?Thanks, Keith

    61 views and no advice! I guess it can't be altered.

    What application are you talking about? Right-clicking (aka control-clicking) in the Finder gives you the option of a New Folder.

    I am addicted to the digital photo of the day on this forum and use the photos as my desktop wallpaper. When I 'control-click' I want to send the photo to my wallpaper folder. I therefore need a way to have that particular folder as an option. Thank you, Keith

    I would just make an "alias" of the wallpaper folder and put on the desktop. Then drag the photo you want off the "Photo of the Day" web page and drop in the folder. I think this would be even faster than all that right clicking.

    It can be done. I read about it on an Apple developer page once. It requires Xcode an a knowledge of the Cocoa programming language.

    I mis-read your initial post. I am not sure about doing this with the contexual menu's but you could do this with Quicksilver.

    This contextual menu plugin will let you choose a folder to which you Copy To, Move To and Make Alias in of a file.

    You can browse for a destination folder at the spot or set as many predestined folders as you like.
