NuGet Package Actipro Shell (for WPF)

Actipro Shell controls allow for easy folder and file browsing in WPF applications.

While the product comes packed with a pre-built implementation for the Windows shell that mimics Windows Explorer, the controls are fully customizable, allowing you to filter or change the folders/files presented. Or build your own shell service to support other files systems, such as the remote side for a FTP client.

All of the UI found in the Shell controls is native WPF, and can be fully-themed or even customized with XAML data templates.

Documentation is available on the Actipro web site (, and samples can be downloaded from the Actipro WPF Controls GitHub repository (
