Hi Java Lovers,

I needed to extract advanced information of a file, ( right click on any file and click on the summary tab ). I would like to extract information like Summary and Origin from there in java. Any ideas how to achieve that ?

Hello "Maks Mak"-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

On your way in you may have missed that we have a policy on screen names here at JavaRanch. Basically, it must consist of a first name, a space, and a last name, and not be obviously fictitious. Since yours does not conform with it, please take a moment to change it, which you can do right here.

As to your question, when you say "right click on a file", do you mean in Windows Explorer?
