Shell objects

Today’s Lockergnome Windows Daily has a pointer to a neat tool that fits right in with my entry about special folders (e.g. My Computer). Called the Shell Object Editor, it’s a small, free download that lets you add, delete and modify your own shell objects. In expert mode you can even futz with the shell folders that are already present on your machine. The author explicitly states that he’s using some undocumented functions so this isn’t something I’d count on working when you need it. Still, if you’re like me, just seeing the shell objects that are already present on your machine is a real learning experience.
