Windows Explorer is a very flexible shell. Many of its dialogs, windows, menus and options can be changed or extended. Windows supports a special COM-based plugin technology known as Shell Extensions to make it possible. There are many built-in Shell Extensions and you can see them almost everywhere:
- All virtual folders such as Printers, Control Panel, Recycle Bin are shell extensions
- File-specific icons, small arrows on link icons, link icons itself are shell extensions too
- Additional context-sensitive menu items are supplied by file-specific shell extension modules
- Tips in the tray icon menu, property sheets and many other items you see every day...
All these wonderful additions are Shell Extensions. With Shell+ you can easy develop your own Shell Extensions. It will make your program more convenient and attractive.
As usual with Delphi it is easy to start - only a few clicks are necessary to generate your own shell extension from scratch. Shell+ takes care of all methods to be implemented so you will never need to code numerous interfaces required by Windows. Write only necessary code, Shell+ will do all other routine jobs.
