Customize Windows 7 Send-To Menu

You’ve seen the "Send to" function in action any time you right-click a file and select the "Send to" from the context menu. What you might be unaware of is that you can customize the items in this menu.

Battlefield 3 Unleashed


Battlefield 3 is a first person shooter action video game and is the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise. It is a direct sequel to Battlefield 2 (released in 2005). It is released on 25th October 2011.
Battlefield 3 uses a new gaming engine - "Frostbite 2", built especially for this game. This Frostbite 2 engine can realistically portray the destruction of buildings and scenery to a greater extent than previous engine. With its stunning visuals, this game is a strong contender for "best looking game" awards.

KEY FEATURES
  • Extensive Co-op Gameplay - Unique maps and missions are available for players to tackle online with a friend, using co-op specific gameplay features. Co-op missions tie into the single player story.
  • Frostbite 2 Enabled Destruction - Frostbite 2 creates a whole new level of life-like destruction. Enhanced large and small scale destruction now has a tactical purpose. Chip away at cover, blow holes in walls, deform the terrain, and bring down entire building fa├žades on enemies.
  • Ultimate Vehicle Warfare - The signature Battlefield vehicle warfare experience is even richer and more rewarding. Damaged vehicles can now retreat or be defended until they automatically regain armor, while disabled vehicles become static gun platforms to cover players doing repairs.
  • Personalized Dog Tages - Players can now customize the look of their dog tags. The Battlefield twist on this is that dog tags are collected when you successfully execute a knife attack. Collecting dog tags will definitely become the sole objective of some ambitious players. The dog tags display a dynamically tracked stat of choice and appear on defeated enemies screens.
  • New Classes - Battlefield 3 will feature 4 classes (or kits), much like previous Battlefield games. The classes are varied and each can serve two or more purposes, for example, the assault class can be team oriented with a med kit and defibrillator, or more offensive with a grenade launcher. All classes have dedicated weapons which can be only used by that class, while there is also a wide selection of weapons available to all classes, weapons like SMGs.
    1. Assault: The Assault class is still responsible for kicking enemy butt on the frontlines, but has now been given equipment like medkits and defibrillators.
    2. Engineer: The Engineer seems to be the least changed of all the classes, with its primary focus being the upkeep and destruction of vehicles. In Bad Company 2, the Engineer's primary weapons were sub-machine guns. Is seems that they will be using carbina asault rifles in Battlefield 3.
    3. Support: The new Support class is reminiscent of the Battlefield 2 Support class with a new twist on it. This class used light machine guns that can be mounted on surfaces for added accuracy. It can also equip a more-powerful-than-usual flashlight that can blind enemies. The most interesting aspect of the Support class is its new "Suppressing Fire" ability, which causes enemies screen to blur when you shoot in their proximity.
    4. Recon: The sneaky sniper class is back and will feel familiar to anyone who has played Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Sniper's are more dangerous than ever now that they can go into prone.
