Support Windows Explorer Plugins

For example, I use 7-zip which adds its own menu to the context menu. It would be helpful to have this available in XYplorer.

The shell context menu including custom items by shell extensions is supported, of course.

However, you cannot have items of 64-bit shell extensions in the shell context menu of a 32-bit application and vice versa. This the law by Windows architecture.

Workaround: Often this can be fixed by installing the 32-bit version of the application "side-by-side" with the 64-bit version.

Thank-you for your reply. By "the application", do you mean XYplorer, or the other application I want to use with it (for example, 7-zip)? If the latter, that could lead to a lot of extra installations.

The latter.
