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.
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!
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’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?
I’d like to suggest, that the correct archive type is (always) selected, when adding files by drag & drop to an archive.
This is already happening if the archive has the correct extension. For example, if I’m adding files to test.zip, zip will be selected. If I’m adding files to test.7z, 7z will be selected as format in “Add dialog”.
But this won’t be working, if the archive has not the “right” extension.
So XPI files (Firefox addons) for example are ZIP files. PowerArchiver opens them without any problems, but if I try to add file by drag & drop, PowerArchiver won’t auto select “ZIP”, but use the last selected archive format, while PowerArchiver already knows, that I’m trying to add files to a ZIP.
I love this, only there is one problem. The UAC elevation feature does not extend to Mount Image option in the add-on software PA provided. It is most annoying whenever I am on highest UAC settings and I mount an ISO, every time I open and create a virtual drive UAC appears. I also do not want to completely disable UAC.
Is adding UAC elevation for mount image feature possible?
Save PA Configuiration Setting Poll

Who would like PA to create a SAVE Configuration Settings Button. Thus stoping a user after each upgrade or fresh install to reset all his/her settings.
I think that, it will be a good idea :p
But more important is remove all bugs from PA2007 :D
And if You want to save your options do what spwolf said ;)
thank you guys - you can always export via regedit.exe and then just execute the .reg file after installation…

Spywolf is an experienced user and so are most of us but what about those who don’t know what a registry is and how to use it? as im sure you will agree when dealing with the Registry you have to be carefull as making a mistake can cause countless amounts of problems.
Even microsoft office enables you to export your prefered settings so you can save time on the next install or upgrade.
Ofcourse the most important thing to fix are the bugs, but this Poll isnt about that its about a vote on how many users both advanced and beginners would prefer the ability to save their settings.
For administrators this would be good as you could set PA to Look and work exactly the way they want other systems too and then easily upload the settings file to a default location within the PA Programs folder.
moved to the wishlist… Administrators can already create their own registration settings themselves and apply them.
How hard is to use regedit.exe? If you cant use regedit.exe, then you probably dont need to save/export PA configuration settings.
Of course, only reason you have to re-enter the settings in Beta’s is because of the BUG and using beta’s, of course :-).
Problem with adding any feature is that you have to add it, translate it, troubleshoot it, support it and maintain it. So unless it is really crucial, its better not to add another feature that nobody will use :-), since we already have list of features for next releases.
When you have 3,000 features, it is hard to use them all and be able to present them to the users :-).
