SHS files are special OLE object files and cannot be opened directly. They can only be dragged into another opened document. When SHS files are created, an associated icon is placed on the desktop. If this icon is deleted, the scrap file is also deleted.

Support for scrap files was discontinued with Windows Vista. Earlier versions of Windows included the Windows Shell Scrap Object Handler, which is stored in the file shscrap.dll. This file handled the drag and drop operations to and from Word and Excel documents to create SHS files. However, SHS files cannot be opened in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, since these Windows versions do not include the handler.

NOTE: SHS files typically have a hidden “.shs” file extension. Be careful when opening them since they are executable and have been known to contain viruses.
