thx for that link Leo
Here's a link to perhaps the quickest fix:

Basically, Control Panel > Default Programs > Set program access and computer defaults > Custom > Choose a default media player >
... disable Enable access to this program next to Windows Media Player.
** Next .... I discovered that NCH software's "TempoPerfect Metronome" installed the context menu entries of
"Convert/Edit --- Audio/Video" files .... so I handled that one too.
** Now there's just 1 thing that remains ..... in the SendTo menu -- how do I prevent the entire list of drives/partitions being shown?
This is interesting -- I should have made a note of the forum entry, but as I was searching for a solution to all of this,
I came across a post by Leo that said something to the effect that --
Windows OS errors in its handling of certain context menu entries,
and since dOpus actually handles/displays them "correctly", then it appears to be a glitch/error to the unknowing/unsuspecting/unskilled user.
so, I reckon this is likely what is happening with this display of the entire drives/partitions.
btw -- I do NOT have Windows' or dOpus' "show hidden context menu items" enabled -- I simply hold "Shift" if I want to see this,
so I would ASSume this is NOT why this behaviour is occurring .... but then again, this IS Windows
