SOCKShell 1.3 Windows Explorer context menu custom extensions (Snippet ID 24407)
The Windows Explorer’s File menu and context menu (the menu displayed when you right click on an item in the Explorer window) display the options that operate on the selected object. These operations include the standard Cut, Copy, Delete and Rename operations if they are appropriate, and will often include other operations which are specific to the type of object that was clicked on.
SOCKShell expands and enhances the Windows Explorer context menu by adding a number of new predefined options and allowing you to add any number of your own options, both to the main context menu and to the SOCKShell submenu.
The predefined options include:
Analyse Pascal source code – Report on the number of lines, classes, functions, procedures etc.
Explore in a new window – Open a new copy of Windows Explorer in the selected folder.
Copy the full path – Copy the full path of the selected item(s) to the Windows Clipboard.
Edit with Wordpad – Edit the selected file with Windows Wordpad.

Open a Command Prompt – Open a Windows Command prompt in the selected folder.
Set file attributes – Set the attributes of the selected file(s) and folder(s).
