The Delphi Dev Shell Tools utility for Windows has recently been updated to support XE6 and AppMethod. What this utility does is modify the right click menu of the Windows File Explorer to give you custom options for Delphi related files. It is a free utility downloadable from Google Code. It has built in specific Tasks for .dpr, .dproj files (Rad Studio Projects), .groupproj (Group Projects). For example, you can right click on a DPR file (which is a Delphi Project) and tell it to compile that project for Android or IOS right from the Windows shell using the MSBuild tool. It says right at the top of the menu what your current Delphi XE5/XE6/AppMethod build configuration is so that when you do build from the menu you’re sure to get the right build that you want (and not a debug build when you wanted a release build). It also supports common tasks for all of the normal Delphi source and form files like .pas, .fmx, and .dfm. Here is a sample of the common tasks it supports:
Copy File Path to the clipboard : Copy the path of the selected file to the clipboard.
Copy Full FileName to the clipboard : Copy the full file-name (Path + Name) of the selected file to the clipboard.
Copy FileName using URL format to the clipboard : Copy the full file-name (Path + Name) of the selected file to the clipboard using the Internet Path format
Copy FileName using UNC format to the clipboard : Copy the full file-name (Path + Name) of the selected file to the clipboard UNC format
Copy file content to the clipboard : Copy the content of the selected file to the clipboard.
Open In Notepad : Open the selected file in the notepad editor.
Open In Default text file editor : Open the selected file in the default text editor installed.
Open In associated text editor : Open the selected file in the associated text editor.
Open Command Line here : Open the cmd.exe application in the folder of the selected file.
