Which sentence is correct?
Yesterday i have showed you the way how to do this particular thing
Yesterday i have shown you the way how to do this particular thing
"Showed" would be best here, thus:
Yesterday, I showed you the way....
(Note to self: I should have read Pyoung's post before posting one of my own.)

Birds of a feather..
Now you guys are confusing me... Petra wrote something else and you are simply contradicting him.. Will anyone explain me whats the correct usage?
Thank you so much Petra for the kind help.. Can you pls tell me where we can use this word---> shown
As bhaisahab says, 'shown' is the past participle of the verb 'to show.'
Some examples are:
She has shown her paintings in several galleries.
(Contrast this with, 'Last year she showed her work in several galleries.')
After he had shown me the way, I never felt lost.
(Contrast with, 'After he showed me the way, I never felt lost.)
That old story has shown up on the Internet every few months for ten years.
(Contrast with, 'That old story showed up on the Internet again last week.')
I hope this is helpful,
