Can you include .3MF to the list of re-compressible formats? Its structure is similar to MS Office 2007 documents and Open Document Format. It is a ZIP Deflate archive with XML data and some JPG, and/or PNG pictures inside. Otherwise, if I try to compress .3MF it bearly makes it smaller unless I recompress .3MF to the Store setting then it makes it a lot smaller.
Wish they all would move to 7zip ZSTD in the first place so that the optimized file size with FileOptimizer would be 50% of the ZIP Deflate version. And there would be no extra compression needed :)
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
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.
I have C:\Temp
Inside this folder there are 3 zip files. Lets call them TestApplication1.zip, TestApplication2.zip and TestApplication3.zip.
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 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
extract to filename/?
I think it was added in 6.0 or 5.1? Not sure
