CobView is a shell context menu extension used to quickly access the properties of the selected files. This is a replacement for the old QuickView utility, but much more powerful due to its plug-in architecture.

You can access CobView when you right click any file or folder on your computer. The program analyzes the file extension and starts the right plug-in to view the file.

Some standard plug-ins show, for example, text files with syntax highlighting (Pascal, c++, java, html, etc), the exported and imported functions of a dll or exe file, the ID3 tags of a mp3 file, and many more...
