When you select a file or folder in Explorer window, and choose 'Properties' from the menu, you get the properties window that contains some essential information about the file: The size of file, created date, modified date, attributes, and so on.
It's possible to display this properties window programmatically, by using the ShellExecuteEx API function.
The function below accept 2 parameters, and displays the properties window of the file:
hwnd - The handle of the window that calls this function.
lpszFile - The file or folder that you want to display its properties.

void ShowFileProperties(HWND hwnd, LPSTR lpszFile)

   ShExecInfo.cbSize = sizeof(SHELLEXECUTEINFO);
   ShExecInfo.hwnd = hwnd;
   ShExecInfo.lpVerb = "properties";
   ShExecInfo.lpFile = lpszFile;
   ShExecInfo.lpParameters = "";
   ShExecInfo.lpDirectory = NULL;
   ShExecInfo.nShow = SW_SHOW;
   ShExecInfo.hInstApp = NULL;
