Remarks

When to Implement

Implement IShellView2 if your namespace extension provides services to clients beyond those in IShellView.

When to Use

You do not call this interface directly. IShellView2 is used by the operating system only when it has confirmed that your application is aware of this interface. Objects that expose IShellView and IShellView2 are usually created by other Shell folder objects.
