  • Create a new key named “Copy To Folder” (or whatever you prefer)
  • Set the Standard value in the right window to {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

An entry “Move To Folder” can also be added. Just follow the instructions above and set the Standard value to {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}.
