All-In-One Windows Shell Code Samples

Introduction

The All-In-One Windows Shell code samples demonstrate the typical programming topics about extending Windows Shell and using the Windows Shell APIs. These topics are either frequently asked in MSDN forums and Microsoft Support, or are requested by many developers via our code sample request function. We want to alleviate the frustration felt by developers when they are developing against Windows Shell.
