    I need to open a Scrap (.shs) file on my computer, but they ditched that from Windows Vista onward.

    I'm looking at the tutorial from the last post on this page:
    social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wordshare/thread/c4618ebd-e248-4340-ab6a-1b79fd808c46

    It tells you how to open scrap files in Windows 7, but needs the "shscrap.dll" file that should be present in the C:\Windows\system32 directory of a Windows XP machine.

    If anyone still using XP could upload that file (too risky to download it from shady sites) somewhere, that would be appreciated :)

    Or, of course, if anyone has any other ideas for opening the SHS file? It seems a bit uncommon so I've been having trouble finding out how to open it.

    Thanks so much! I was able to open the Scrap file I wanted - it just launched through Microsoft Word after I followed those instructions.
