    Right Click Context menu

    I want to have nested menus inside my right click context menu. (ie when I mouse over 7-zip extract here and open with 7-zip pop up). I was told the only way to do this is by making a .dll. does anybody know where I could get started to try and make one?


    Thanks,

    Joe
    A quality job is not necessarily a *good* job. A quality job is, by definition, conformance to requirements. Therefore a *good* job, may not be a quality job.

    Ah yes, shell extensions. There are a whole bunch of 'em you can do. Here is a very nice tutorial:
    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/shell/shellextguide1.aspx
    Keep reading all of them and you're bound to find something to your liking.

    And a tip from me: don't let your code crash. Ever. Use try/catch handlers or the like to catch any sort of errors. Your code crashing means it takes explorer down with it. Bad.
