Is it possible

I would like to use Windows Explorer as control in my app (panel or
control). Is there a simple way to do that? I don't like to re-code existing
functionality - like browsing folders, selecting file(s) etc.

You can create a kind of Windows Explorer yourself. For that are enough
samples on MSDN. It is in fact nothing more than a Treeview, a Combobox and
a ListVieew and than a lot of buttons, menu's groupboxes, statusbar etc.
having a lot of functions special for the things that belongs where it is
build for.

All that functionality is (re) usable.

I hope this helps

That's what I want to avoid if possible. I would like to give user his
customized explorer - with all the menus, buttons, associations and
functions - not my limited version. I don't want to create another
Explorer - I want to use existing one.

I have not done it, but sounds like you might be able to start explorer then
tack it to your own window using the SetParrent API.

Might get you as close as you will get...

Nope,

doesn't work as expected. Explorer is a bit more tricky.

I can set parent, but this causes some strange events especially after my
app is closing.

Thx
