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.
Split file and add to archive
I’m not sure if this has been requested before but i would love to have a feature that enables you to split a file into several parts and automatically convert them into an archive format specified.
Why not to use the Spanned Archive?
Just specify the size of each part under the “Multiple Disk Spanning" when creating a ZIP or 7-ZIP archive…
how do i do that exactly?

If you use the Windows Explorer Shell Extensions for compressing files:
- Right click any file(s) you want to compress and span. > Choose Compress With Options from the context menu
- In the “Add” window you can find “Multiple Disk Spanning” options. From the list select the disk size you need or choose “Custom” and manually specify the size in kBytes…
If you use the Main PowerArchiver Windows for compressing:
- Create a “New” archive
- In the “Add” window you can find “Multiple Disk Spanning” options. From the list select the disk size you need or choose “Custom” and manually specify the size in kBytes.
You can also span already existing ZIP archive:
Choose “Write Multi-Volume ZIP…” from the Tools menu in the main PowerArchiver Window.
