Default extraction location



  • Hi, I don’t know if there’s a way to do this currently or not. I tried searching through the preferences and didn’t see it, so I’m posting this as a Wishlist item:

    Usually when I’m trying to extract an archive, I create a folder and copy the archive into it and want to extract it there. Right now when I click “Extract” the popup window that contains the file selector treeview defaults to the last place I extracted to, I think. I’d like an option that makes it default to the directory that the archive is currently in. This would improve workflow quite a bit, because I find that file/directory selector dialog and its treeview sort of tedious to use.

    Just right click on the file and select Extract Here.

    If you have not set that up in the configuration yet just add it in Shell Extensions as in the attached pic.

    To change this when using PowerArchiver (rather than explorer shell), check the different choices available under Configuration/Folders - Other Default Extract Location.
