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)
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.
