Killing all instances of explorer.exe (the shell and the file manager) from task manager is much the same as a logoff, starting it again the same as a logon, except you don't have to stop all the rest of your programs too. From inside a script you can use taskkill on xp or an api on older windows, this is how one of the ffdshow installers does it now.

Pierre, can you download "Microsoft Photo Info 1.0" shell extension and see if XnView 2.0's shell extension can have the same IPTC and XMP functions?
Microsoft's is crap, it accesses port 80 (HTTP) everytime it starts and it's built on .NET 2.0 making it really slow to start!

I know MS Photo Info, and it's easy to take IPTC dialog from xnview and to use it in ShellExtension. A lot of users are interested?

Hello, there's a strange phenomena about the shell extension in Vista. Once I open explorer the normal way, the shell extension just don't work, but opening explorer with the "open" or "save as" dialogues makes it work:

And here's my question, how can I force the extension to work?

With predefined size? Or with a dialog to choose the size?

For a quick conversion you right-click on the image and use "Convert into > JPG".

If you want to convert using specific options, you ...
1.) Right click on the image
2.) Select "Convert..."
3.) Choose "JPG - JPEG/JIFF" as output format
4.) Select "Settings" button
5.) Set JPG options (Quality, ...)
6.) Confirm with "OK".
7.) Start conversion with "Convert" button.
Done.
