Extensions allows you to perform additional tasks using a
familiar interface - the Window Explorer. The program is available separate 32-bit & 64-bit versions and is compatible with Window Vista and above, including Windows 10.
Explorer Extensions is a collection of enhancements for the Explorer right-click context menu. We created Explorer Extensions for those who need some of the secondary functions of our Directory Toolkit program but who don't need a comparison utility.
The Explorer Extensions functions are:
Split - Divide a large file into smaller ones for storage on floppy disks. Split can be based on the size you specify or the presence of a string to locate in the file itself. You can also specify which 'Disk' to start with. Split can write to floppies or a subdirectory on your hard disk. Split also creates a .bat routine that can 'concatenate' the files later on a machine that does not have Explorer Extensions installed. [Screen shots]
Concatenate - The reverse of Split, Concatenate rejoins file sections to reconstruct the original file. Concatenate has a function to decode the resulting file -- useful for multipart usenet messages where the attachments are separated across multiple messages. Concatenate also has a functions to add alternating lines from the input files to the target and (optionally) remove duplicate adjacent lines. Note that Concatenate can be used to join any two (or more) files together. For example, Concatenate can be used to simplify creation of self-extracting zips based on our 'FS Zip Self-Extractor' stub. [Screen shots]
Encode - Translates binary files into a format suitable for Internet Email attachments. Encode supports UUENCODE, Base64(Mime), BinHex(Mac), Quoted-Printable, & XXENCODE formats. [Screen shots]
Decode - The reverse function to Encode, Decode is used to convert e-mail attachments back to their original form. The Decode function automatically detects UUENCODE, Base64(Mime), BinHex(Mac), XXENCODE, Quoted-Printable, 7 bit unencoded, & plain text. [Screen shots]
Touch - Touch is used to change the time, date, and attributes of files directly from Explorer. Touch can also add (or subtract) a specified time value from the current date of one or more files. [Screen shots]
File Management Tools - Yes you can do file operations with Windows Explorer. But Explorer Extensions has file functions that can rename, copy, move, delete using complex file masks. File mask 'wild cards' can also be used to numbering file names sequentially and change the case of file names. [Screen shots]
ZIP File Comments Display - The newest function, Explorer Extensions adds a 'Property Sheet' to the Windows Explorer context menu to let you view and edit zip file comments. [Screen shots]
