From what I've read, a shell extension is invoked when a user right-clicks on a file in Windows Explorer. Is there a way to capture an event or run a shell extension when a user left-clicks on a file?
 
I need to track the files a user selects as he selects them. Is that possible?
 
Thanks for your help.
