I came accross this pretty cool tool for .NET that lets you build Shell extensions for Windows explorer amongst other things.
I found it fairly straightforward. By following the online help and looking at the samples provided I managed to knock out my own shell extension in next to no time.
It works quite nicely in Visual Studio 2003 and also supports VS 2005 / .NET 2.0.
I can feel a major new app coming on!

Like Ryan, I didn't just post this for the free software. This actually fills a real need!
