Context menu - shell extensions

   I have an ATL component which handles the context menus for file right clicks and perform some tasks. When a file is right-clicked, three options should appear in the pop-up menu. When any of the options is clicked, a function should be invoked. This works fine.
   The problem is, when a shortcut(link to a file) is right clicked, each options appear twice. How do I rectify it? For shortcuts, the option should not occur at all.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In 'IShellExt::QueryContextMenu()', evaluate if 'uFlags' contains CMF_VERBSONLY - if so, you're dealing with a shortcut.
