Windows 7: What are Shell extensions?

What are Shell extensions?

Hello,

When installing some software, they ask for shell extensions to be also installed or not.
What are shell extensions? Are they necessary?
Should we install shell extensions when asked to do so?

Thank you

Maybe that will give you some better understanding of it.

Windows shell

Just basically asking you if you want the software to integrate into Windows, like into the right-click context menu, etc.
