File Extension SHS

Information about SHS files and how to open them

File created by Microsoft Word and Excel when a user drags and drops selected document text onto the desktop; contains a copy of the highlighted contents in its native document format; used to copy portions of a document for insertion into another document. SHS files are special OLE object files and cannot be opened directly. They can only be dragged into another opened document. When SHS files are created, an associated icon is placed on the desktop. If this icon is deleted, the scrap file is also deleted. The support for scrap files was discontinued with Windows Vista. Earlier versions of Windows included the Windows Shell Scrap Object Handler, which is stored in the file shscrap.dll. This file handled the drag and drop operations to and from Word and Excel documents to create SHS files. However, SHS files cannot be opened in Windows Vista or Windows 7, since these Windows versions do not include the handler. NOTE: SHS files typically have a hidden ".shs" file extension. Be careful when opening them since they are executable and have been known to contain viruses.
