# Shell extension menu 'bugs'

• If the filename begins with a ‘.’ it looks like this. It might not be a bug, but it’d be nice to see something like .text.zip if there’s no text before the ‘.’ in a filename. Thanks for a great program none the less

Also it’d be nice to have a right-click option to compress ISO/NRG/BIN files instead of just extract… this might in fact be a bug, or at least a possible oversight. Maybe have this option depend upon if power archiver is associated with such files or not?

• Sorry, I missed this post.

Well, Windows does not allow creating a file called .xxx
Just gives error, “there must be a filename”. Of course, you could select “Compress with options” and then give the zip another name as required.

PA treats ‘iso’ files as archives, so you have to enable the shell option “Compress to… (for archives)”

The shell might not like to create files that start with a period, but other programs (including the command line or notepad) have no probelm with them.

So they do. And, if you also give them an extension ‘.test.txt’ then PA also has no problem.
