Get file path from currently selected files in windows explorer

I am creating a small VB app and am not sure how to go about getting some functionality working.  
I would like to select a file or multiple files in windows explorer and be able to right click on the selected file or files and "send" to my app.   Basically how to I get the file path and names for the selected files  so I can pass as arguments, create an array of file paths...etc  
Should I be  using the windows api ?
How do I read file properties on a selected file ?
 Any help or reference code is greatly appreciated.

1. You can write an Window application or Console application
2. Put the executable in "SendTo" folder so that it is available as an option to "Send To"
3. The selected files have to be passed as arguments to your application  main method.

You dont need any Windows API for this
You will have to shell extension to send the selected items as arguments

Answer was correct and very fast. The keyword of shell extentions lead me to google and further research, however the answer did not provide a further decription, reference links or code example
