Add batch to queue

  • A feature that would be awesome for me would be the ability to select multiple archives in Windows explorer and add them all to the queue to start decompressing. The queue could then just ask where the standard “Extract To…”, “Extract to here…” or “Extract to Here\ArchiveName” then it would just kick off.

    That would be awesome. Yup!

    you can do that if you enable Always use queue in PA Starter right click options :-)

  • Really? I can’t get this to work.

    I’m talking about extracting multiple archives in just one click.

    Also, if the queue window is open, dragging and dropping into the queue would be cool, too.

    Imagine this.

    I have C:\Temp

    Inside this folder there are 3 zip files. Lets call them, and

    I’d like to be able to select all the files, right click in Windows Explorer and say “Extract selected files…”

    At this point the queue would take all these files in. Then, for each archive, it could have a dialog box, “where do you want to extract this?” with a checkbox for (do this for all archives in queue) then have the normal options you have. In my case, I’d like to extract them into a folder with the archive name.

    So the end result would be like this…


    And I accomplished this in just a few clicks.

    Right click files
    Extract all…
    Extract to CurrentDirector\ArchiveName

    Hope that makes more sense!

  • Ok, so, guess what… you added a new shell extention option in some new version that does exactly what I want. But you probably already knew that.

    You guys rule. Sorry I’m an idiot! :D
