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)
Don't want to see the 'update' window when there's no update(!)

Firstly, I’d like to congratulate you on a great product. It knocks the spots of any other archive app I’ve used.
Anyway, my ‘wish’ is this: when I run PA, it sometimes checks for an update. However, when there is no update available, the window still pops up and tells me ‘there’s no update available’. OK, so if there’s no update - why do I need to know? I don’t care if there’s no update available, only if there is an update.
I’d like it if the ‘update’ window was only shown if there was an update available.
So it’s a minor request, but it bugs me.
Many thanks, and keep up the good work.
This is done to show what is PowerArchiver accessing internet for. When we first started this feature, we didnt show the screen unless it had an update - we just showed it in status bar.
After getting tens of emails accusing us of spyware, we decided to show screen at all times :).

Yes, that’s a fair point. How about showing the screen to say it’s checking for an update, then closing it automatically if there’s none available?
Thanks for the reply, anyway.
Bam! Wish granted. Please look at PA 2009 Beta 1.
