Button to open the extract folder



  • Hi

    Just wanted to say top work on a great product. I’ve been using it for years for all my zip and rar needs 🙂

    Anyway one thing that I think would make it better (for me anyway) is to have a button that will open the last extraction folder in explorer so that you can access those files you have just extracted. (I did have a quick look for this feature in the app and help but couldn’t find anything about it, so I thought I’d suggest it here)

    Cheers

    There are several options on how to do this, easiest one would be to minimize PA to tray and then when alert pops out, you will get an option to click on an link and go to folder that was used.

    thanks,



  • I’ll give that a try, is there any way of making it automatic? Sometimes the decompress happens that quick i don’t get chance to click the minimize to tray button. And I’m not gonna request that the decompress is made slower so i always get chance to press it 😉

    there is actually, go to the PA> Config> Shell Extensions> and check “Open folder after extracting” checkbox!

    thanks,

    Maybe - work the other way round?
    Use explorer shell/context menu (instead of opening archive in PA) then just select “extract here” or “extract to {archive name as foldername}”



  • Thanks for that tip, I’ll make use of shell extensions more now 🙂

    Cheers
