Very useful. Here's how to do it - at least on XP:

*Click Start > Run
* Type Shell:Sendto (this will open the C:\Documents and 
Settings\Administrator\SendTo folder)
* Delete any 'SendTo' shortcuts you don't want.
* Rightclick, click New, and Shortcut
* Browse to the location of the editor
* Click Next, type a name for the shortcut, and click Finish.

12 years on, and I'm still finding new things about XP.

(Drifting off topic, but I think it's worth noting.)
