A review of PDF-ShellTools by Fernando Ortega

Looking for an easier way to deal with PDF files via the Microsoft Windows Shell? That's exactly what PDF-Shelltools was designed to do. It can work on PDF files without having to load the sluggish Adobe Acrobat or Reader. It supports merging of PDF files, can view PDF metadata, can insert and append and manage PDF file properties.

PDF-ShellTools can read PDF files and edit PDF files.

PDF-ShellTools features and highlights:
  • Show file metadata information in shell Infotip balloons
  • Property sheet to edit the metadata information
  • Insert, append or attach supported document(s) onto a PDF file
  • Right click a file in the Windows Shell

PDF-ShellTools is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from pdf software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after 30 days). The PDF-ShellTools 3.1.1 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
