A Hex Viewer Shell Extension.

  • Introduction

    Here’s a nifty little tool for those who need hex viewers ‘on the go’. Quick Hex is basically a shell extension that-you guessed it-displays an extra context menu item called "Show Hex" when you right click on a file and displays the file in hex when selected.

    The good thing about Quick Hex is that it can display files of sizes up to 4GB and that too, at lightning fast speed. The Quick Hex dialog is also modeless-meaning you can view as many files as you like simultaneously. As a bonus, you can also select and copy any portion of text to the clipboard from a screenful of hex!

    To install, simply extract the hexshell.dll to your Windows system directory. You need to register the .dll using regsvr32.exe from the command prompt, before using it. For example:

    regsvr32 c:\windows\system\hexshell.dll
    

    The program has been thoroughly tested on both Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0.
