Shell Extension for any file type

P: n/a
Greetings,

I'd like to write a shell extension so that a user can right-click on any
file, regardless of its extension, and my extension will appear as one of
the choices on the context menu that pops up.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tim

After reading my own question, I think I need to clarify it a bit.

I'd like to write a utility that extends the Windows shell with an
additional choice on the context menu that pops up when the user
right-clicks on a file. Say my utiltity is called "Luhar's Amazing File
Wrangler" or whatever. The user right-clicks on any file from within
Explorer and the context menu pops up with "Luhar's Amazing File Wrangler"
as one of the choices on the menu. The user selects that choice and my
utility does its thing on the selected file.

hope that didn't muddy things up even more...
