The Emacs analog to Windows Explorer is dired (directory editor).
In Windows Explorer you can select a file, right-click, and select
an operation to perform on that file.  In Emacs dired you can select
a file and perform an operation on that file.

However the set of operations Emacs knows about is different from
the set of operations Windows Explorer knows about.  In addition
to the usual dired operations, I'd really like to be able to run
the operations Windows Explorer knows about from within the Windows
version of Emacs.  Does anyone know if this capability has ever
been implemented?  If so, what do I need to install?
Load `w32-browser.el' and `dired+.el', and you'll be good to go.
