What does Shell32.FolderItem's IsBrowsable mean



Using Shell32.FolderItem's IsBrowsable I find, for example, that Internet
Explorer and Printers and Faxes are browsable.

I studied Help to find the definition of Browsable but could not find it.

Can you tell me what Browserable means?

Thanks in advance

I found the documentation in MSDN. It states:

Indicates if the item can be browsed.

Which makes sense. If the property returns false, then it means that it
can not be browsed.

Hope this helps.

I saw similar thing in VS help but that does not define what it means to
browse.

What does it mean that Internet Explorer and Printers and Faxes are
browsable

How do I browse them.

I believe when I checked a directory is not browsable, but I'm not sure I'm
remembering correctly about that.
Thanks

I would assume it means whether or not it is visible...

This property reflects the "List/Read Data" NTFS file/folder access
permission, that is, it idicates whether the folder contents can be viewed
by the current user.
