New article on PowerShell Magazine: Use Shell.Application to display extended file attributes

My latest article on PowerShell Magazine is on how to use Shell.Application Com object to display extended file attributes in PowerShell. Because this is heavily dependent on the Windows version and localization this does present some challenges. The full article containing tips on how to use this class is available on PowerShell Magazine : Use Shell.Application to display extended file attributes

The following example will list the first three attributes using the Shell.Application object:

$com = (New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application).NameSpace('C:\')
$com.Items() | ForEach-Object {
 New-Object -TypeName PSCustomObject -Property @{
 Name = $com.GetDetailsOf($_,0)
 Size = $com.GetDetailsOf($_,1)
 ItemType = $com.GetDetailsOf($_,2)
 }
}
