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)
I’m surprised that OneDrive for Business isn’t supported. I can’t link my company’s OneDrive account, but a personal (free) account works fine.
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?
Virtual Drive improvements
It would be really nice if there was a unmount option on the virtual drive like Virtual Clone Drive supports to unmount. Or see the complete context menu options Virtual Clone Drive has, including the ISO filename. If the Eject option did it, that would be even nicer. Also, why does Win7 x64 show a Close Tray option on the virtual drive?
It would be nice if the wizard didn’t come up (or wasn’t implied as being needed by the Mount as Virtual Drive… menu option) and the ISO just mounted.
It would be really nice if the UAC didn’t come up for mounting/unmounting the ISO - Virtual Clone Drive doesn’t have this issue.
Also, shouldn’t the unmount pop-up box actually list the drive/ISO information that is being unmounted?
And I wish the installer had given me an option to install PAVD, or at least the registration process. I don’t normally launch PowerArchiver as a stand alone application. A separate burner interface would be good, too.
PS The Edit post interface should let you edit/add tags too.

if you’re a windows 7 user then this thread maybe useful to you in regards to mount/unmounting virtual drives.
of course there’s always the PASTARTER.EXE option you can use.
