Fix Send To Menu Showing Only Bluetooth Device in Windows 10

When right-clicking a file and clicking the Send To menu in Windows 10, only the Bluetooth Device shortcut may be displayed, although the other shortcuts including the default ones, such as Compressed (zipped) folder, Desktop (create shortcut), Mail Recipient, are intact in the user’s Send To folder.

The problem is caused by a file named Bluetooth, a 0-byte file of type "Send To Bluetooth" which stalls the rendering of Send To menu correctly. Deleting the file fixes the problem. To do so, open your user profile’s Send To folder, which is located at %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo. Simply type the path in the address bar in File Explorer, or run the command shell:sendto from the Run (WinKey + R) dialog to open the Send To folder.

Many users face this issue after upgrading to Windows 10. Perhaps the old Bluetooth software they installed or that came preinstalled with the computer doesn’t play well with Windows 10. Thanks to Keith Miller for the fix.



Delete the file named Bluetooth. (Don’t delete the shortcut Bluetooth device.)

The Send To menu should render correctly.

  1. Thanks for the advice. It actually worked on my pc. It’s been really frustrating to open two folders while transferring files to a USB stick but now its no more.

  2. Did not work for me, the destination folder is still showing empty, but if I try to “sendto” again it asks me if I want to overwrite the existing file! even shows both files if I ask to compare….. so obviously the file is there, just invisible to windows explorer… and yes I have refreshed and even rebooted… when is windows 11 going to arrive ???

  3. Just the fix I needed. I don’t use social media, so I can’t share your post, but I give you five stars. Ramesh makes the world a better place. Thanks
