Quick update on this post - Ian kindly gave me a nudge and said that running of .NET code inside of the shell might not be supported in that the shell loading COM components implemented in .NET might cause some versioning problems.

So, when I'm looking through a folder of 100's of PowerPoints or Spreadsheets I can actually see what it is I'm looking at in the shell rather than having to open all the documents. You can plug into this for your own document types by writing an implementation of the interface IThumbnailProvider and returning a bitmap back to the shell for it to use.

A common type of credential is the X.509 certificate. When creating secure services or clients, you can specify a certificate be used as the client or service credential by using methods such as the SetCertificate method. The method requires various parameters, such as the store where the certificate is stored and a value to use when searching for the certificate. The following procedure demonstrates how to examine the stores on a computer to find an appropriate certificate.

Every few years, we buy an expensive new PC and love how fast it starts up, runs programs, and loads websites. Inevitably though, it starts to slow down until eventually we are pulling our hair out waiting for it to do routine tasks.
