ShellExView

ShellExView - master the right click menu

review from ClifNotes, May 2007, permalink System Tweaking

 

Shell extensions make your computer life easier.

 

Just right clicking on a file gives you options to do a multitude of tasks. Many programs love to put their own shell extensions into the right click menu. After all, this only makes it easier to use the software.

 

What happens when you have too many shell extensions?

 

Your right click could be slow or act weird. You can't find what you are looking for. This happens to me now and then because of all the software I try out.

 

How can you get rid of the shell extensions you don't want?

 

ShellExView was designed to help you control the shell extensions. It will list all the extensions installed on your PC and give you choices on what to do with them. It's not a very large program and it can be downloaded as a no-install zip file or in an installer package.

 

 

Quote from the website

The ShellExView utility displays the details of shell extensions installed on your computer, and allows you to easily disable and enable each shell extension.
