I am looking for a way on how to write a shell extension
that provides ONLY property sheet to the selected
file extension. For example, for files with extension
.BMP and .GIF, I want to give a special property sheet when
user right click the item on explorer. The ShellExt example
in VC++ seems want us to 'override' everything - program
association, icons and stuff. Please give some detail.

You can just remove IContextMenu, IExtractIcon, ICopyHook interaces and base your extension on what is left. Remove the interfaces from list of base classes for you extension class, remove their members from the class and remove their implementation. I'm not sure what IPersistFile is for in the extension (maybe you can also remove it). Remember also to remove the interfaces from QueryInterface function.
