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.
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!
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)
I’d like to propose an improvement for password protected archives.
Actual behavior is:
If I open an archive, which is password protected and make a typo in the password dialog, I’ll get the message, that the password was wrong and I end up with an empty window. I need to reopen the archive to be able to enter the password again.
Tell me, that the password was wrong and give me the chance to enter the correct password to decrypt the archive.
I know I have been asking for this feature some time ago, but as nothing has changed let me ask again:
The ZIPX-format offers an algorithm, that compresses JPEG-files by about 20-30%. Please add compression (packing) support for this in ZIPX-archives to Powerarchiver. Extraction of JPEGs packed into ZIPX by this algorithm is already supported by Powerarchiver for a long time, so it should not be difficult? Or is it a licensing problem?
I’d like to suggest, that the correct archive type is (always) selected, when adding files by drag & drop to an archive.
This is already happening if the archive has the correct extension. For example, if I’m adding files to test.zip, zip will be selected. If I’m adding files to test.7z, 7z will be selected as format in “Add dialog”.
But this won’t be working, if the archive has not the “right” extension.
So XPI files (Firefox addons) for example are ZIP files. PowerArchiver opens them without any problems, but if I try to add file by drag & drop, PowerArchiver won’t auto select “ZIP”, but use the last selected archive format, while PowerArchiver already knows, that I’m trying to add files to a ZIP.
I love this, only there is one problem. The UAC elevation feature does not extend to Mount Image option in the add-on software PA provided. It is most annoying whenever I am on highest UAC settings and I mount an ISO, every time I open and create a virtual drive UAC appears. I also do not want to completely disable UAC.
Is adding UAC elevation for mount image feature possible?
Unmount virtual drive
are there any plans in the pipeline to implement an option to unmount a virtual drive by means of a systray icon perhaps whereby I could just right click it and tell it to unmount?
or have I perhaps missed the boat here and someone else has possibly requested it?
I couldn’t see anything in my search for such an option….figured lots of members may find this option useful.
If you use PA starter the option to Unmount/Remove Device is already there.
thanks Luxor…I forgot that option even existed.
I was also vainly looking for an unmount feature.
Am sorry and maybe I should be ashamed of myself, but … PA Starter ??
Right now I am using the rmb to mount an .iso, but am using Directory Opus, rmb->virtual drive to unmount it.
a) a fixed drive letter cud be configured e.g. ‘Z’
b) unmount be available in the context menu
or at least optionally add this to the context menu.
PA Starter is in your Powerarchiver directory…
it’s an *.exe file (PASTARTER.EXE)
after you run PA Starter the icon indicated in the screenshot will show in your systray…right click on it and all your options are in the menu.
Thanks a lot!
Frankly, I ‘forgot’ this option :o as I disabled PA to startup at PC boot in order to cut down autostarting applications to a minimum.
Still - as after all the unmount-option is in fact available - I keep on hoping that that the developers will also make it available to be added to the usual context menu…
and also have an option to assign a driveletter when mounting. Reason for asking this is that I have external drives that I sometime use (for backups). PA is taking the first free driveletter, which I have assigned to one of the ext.drives.
Consequently I should go into Windows Control to re-assign driveletters.
Anyway, thanks again!
yep I agree it would be handy in the context menu…
as I to disabled PA Starter to minimise autostarting applications.
thanks for the info…I’ll check it out.
