Create 'Copy To' and 'Move To' in context menu

When you right click you get a menu called Context menu.
This tweak shows how you can add two useful entries to it namely
'Copy To' and 'Move To'.
Therefore copying and moving files can be done in two steps.

To add 'Copy To' option, go to Registry and follow the following path;
and right click ContextMenuhandlers and create a new key called
'Copy To' (without quotes).
Select the key you created in right pane, modify the value of default
entry to '{C2FBB630-297111d1A18C00C04FD75D13}' (without quotes).
Similarly, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
and create a sub-key named 'Copy To' and give the same default value
as above.

To add 'Move to' option duplicate the above mentioned steps, but rename
the sub-keys as 'Move To' and the default values as

Now when you right click on any file or folder - except on the desktop
you will get two more options for 'Copy To' and 'Move To'.
Thia may require a windows restart or simply press F5 after modifying
to refresh the changes in registry.
