I've surfed and surfed and read about commandline options in ClamWin
Portable and even 'regular' ClamWin but can't find anything on
automating scanning a file or group of files.  In installed av
software, we have the option to 'scan for viruses' or what have you.
How can we emulate that in ClamWin Portable, anyone know?]

I tried putting a shortcut of the main executable as well as of
FreshClam and ScanClam, or whatever the names were, to the SendTo menu
but nothing worked.  Is there any approach that anyone knows of that
will give us the option to scan a file or files without having to do
all that navigating via the interface?  thx.

Try writing a batch file to scan the file(s) of interest in sequence.

But can it be put in the SendTo folder so that you just right-click on
a folder and then when you dump it on the SendTo entry, it'll scan it?

If so, does anyone already have something written up?  I'm afraid that
the coding is beyond me.  I've seen quite a few batch files for
ClamWin but nothing to easily scan one file or a group of files.

Sorry, I don't know anything about ClamWin or how to invoke it in a DOS
environment.  Van Wolverton, <http://tinyurl.com/qshcqv , is a good source for
basic information.
