I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
It would be nice to be able to at least extract Zstandard archives.
I prefer to use light themes, and when, for example, I have set up my main archive screen to be Classic Toolbar with Blizzard Blue, files in the archive are highlighted (no checkboxes, full row select) with white text on grey background. They are easy to see .
However, in the Add screens, the files and folders are black type upon a pale blue background, which is not so readily visible, especially when highlighting separate files in lists with Ctrl/Click for addition. It would be ideal if the backgrounds to files in these screens could be set to mimic the highlighting of those in the main archive window.
I have tried experimenting with different themes and settings for skins, toolbars and so forth, but, unless I’ve missed something, none seem to give me the effect I want.
Re: Windows 11 Context menu support
It would really make me happy if you put .BH in the Windows 11 context menu. I know it’s in the “More Options” section, but this would make it more convenient. Don’t know why the option to add it to the menu isn’t there in the first place. P-L-E-A-S-E ??? :) Thanks You!
Any chance of including this format in a future release?
Exceptional compression levels.
In Windows 11 a new explorer context menu is introduced.
The “old” context menu may still be accessed through an additional mouse click, to reach the PowerArchiver context menu functions, but this isn’t comfortable at all.
Could you add PowerArchiver items to the first level (and ideally disable the Windows native ZIP entry)
I’m surprised that OneDrive for Business isn’t supported. I can’t link my company’s OneDrive account, but a personal (free) account works fine.
I’d like to propose an improvement for password protected archives.
Actual behavior is:
If I open an archive, which is password protected and make a typo in the password dialog, I’ll get the message, that the password was wrong and I end up with an empty window. I need to reopen the archive to be able to enter the password again.
Tell me, that the password was wrong and give me the chance to enter the correct password to decrypt the archive.
I know I have been asking for this feature some time ago, but as nothing has changed let me ask again:
The ZIPX-format offers an algorithm, that compresses JPEG-files by about 20-30%. Please add compression (packing) support for this in ZIPX-archives to Powerarchiver. Extraction of JPEGs packed into ZIPX by this algorithm is already supported by Powerarchiver for a long time, so it should not be difficult? Or is it a licensing problem?
Thanks for this program, I bought it after about two minutes of comparison with winrar. In other words, it’s almost perfect.
However, can .cbr files be added to the list of associable file formats, please? I tend to run into those frequently.
what is actually cbr?
It’s a format used for comic books and it stores the files in RAR-compression. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_Book_Archive_file
It would be nice to have it supported by PA in the future, because they are really just .rar-files filled with images and thus can be extracted just the same. In fact, manually opening them or renaming them does work, but things like multi-extract don’t.
Can this please be included? It really shouldn’t be hard to implement because the archive itself is already supported.

Is it an opensource archive format? if so I am sure it wont be a problem for powerarchiver to support it.
It is no format at all, just a renamed .rar file to work with CDisplay (see the Wikipedia-Link I posted). It is just a matter of PA recognizing and handling the format for purposes like multi-extract or “extract to”-shell extensions

ow I see! Its type unknown to me. if thats just the case I can’t see the PA developers having a problem with it?
