Using DupScout Windows Shell Extension

DupScout provides a Windows shell extension allowing one to search duplicate files directly from the Windows Explorer application. In order to search duplicates in one or more disks or directories, select the required disks or directories in the Windows Explorer application, press the right mouse button and select the 'DupScout - Find Duplicates' menu.

In most cases, the Windows shell extension is a very useful feature, but sometimes, when the user have too many installed shell extensions, the Windows context menu may become too cluttered. In order to remove the DupScout entry from the Windows context menu, open the options dialog, select the 'General' tab and disable the Windows shell extension.
