    Shell Extensions are in-process COM objects which extends the abilities of Windows operating system. Most shell extensions are automatically installed by the operating system, but there are also many other applications that install additional shell extension components. For example: If you install WinZip on your computer, you'll see a special WinZip menu when you right-click on a Zip file. This menu is created by adding a shell extension to the system.

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

    What's New
    Added 'Add Header Line To CSV/Tab-Delimited File' option. When this option is turned on, the column names are added as the first line when you export to csv or tab-delimited file.

      ShellExView can be a very useful diagnostic tool. Conflicts engendered by third party shell extensions are a quite common cause of computer issues.

      ShellExView will display a list of all shell extensions, readily identifying all those which are non Microsoft. Disabling/enabling extensions is very easy and diagnostics is a simple matter of disabling all non Microsoft extensions. If the problem then goes away, you can just re-enable each extension, one at a time, until the issue returns and you will then know which application is to blame.

      Very simple, easy to use and effective diagnostic tool.
