Useful Options For Right-Click Menu By Shell Tool

Free shell extension utility Shell Tools adds a few good abilities to your right-click menu, including a means of toggling hidden file showing that’s a lot more convenient than digging through each folder’s toolbar menus to find the switch. In addition, the configurable extension tool lets you copy file names instead of files, create (hidden) note files on any file, grab URLs or site names from Internet Explorer bookmarks, and install or load fonts for a single session from the Explorer shell.

Some of the features I like with Shell Tools are the following:

Show Hidden Files – command in folder background menu. This is a quick way to toggle global Windows Explorer’s Show Hidden Files option, that is otherwise buried deep inside folder options window.

FontLoader – Add Load/Unload/Install/Uninstall commands to context menu of font files (TrueType, OpenType and TrueType Collections supported). Windows Vista UAC is supported. (screen shot second image)

CopyURL – Copy different information from one or more selected favorites items (internet shortcuts) to the clipboard. You can customize the commands to make up your own copy strings.
