I am working on a project and I am wondering if it is possible to render the UI of the windows explorer to allow the addition of an additional widget or panel. I am curious if this is possible through the windows api, I have tried searching, but to no avail.

If you want to modify Windows Explorer you are out of luck. There are hacks that exist that allow you to replace Windows Explorer of course. At that point you can do anything you want. If this does not answer clarify your question –  Ramhound Sep 6 '13 at 11:27
