a buddy of mine recently asked me to write him a program to do this and the first step of doing so is researching exactly how it's done and i've come across an even more simple way than an entire program.......so i realize this post here is old news but maybe this will help someone out in the future....... you can use a registry hack like this to add "Find Target" to the context menu for every single file type and directory....cant seem to get this to work for just shortcut (.lnk) files (there really is no point in "find target" if you're looking at the file right?) but hopefully this will point someone in the right direction. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Find.Target] @="&Find Target" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Find.Target\command] @="\"explorer.exe\" /select,\"%1\"" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Find.Target] @="&Find Target" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Find.Target\command] @="\"explorer.exe\" /select,\"%1\""
