Context Menu: Multi-Extract files->multiple folders



  • Up front - I vainly tried to find a solution for the below. Am not sure whether:

    • it has been requested before
    • it is already on the wishlist
    • it is already possible

    Scenario:
    Explorer, right window panel, there are a few ‘single’ .rar files (i.e. not a ‘set’, like part01, part02)

    blabla - file1.rar
    this is - file2.rar
    another-file3.rar

    I want to ctrl-select these files, rmb extract to folders named after the files.

    Is this possible? (using context menu…!)
    If not, is it on the wishlist ?
    If not, wud you move this to the wishlist section?

    TIA

    each file to its own folder? it is option in config> shell ext> extract….



  • ah … tsk tsk … ahum… :o :o
    Thanks!
    it was the last option I did nót add to context menu and have to confess I did not check it (more or less assuming it was not possible I only checked the forum).
    Deep sigh … :o

    Don’t dare to ask but… if I have a number of single files and I want to extract into different folders in a new subfolder.

    so:
    x:\temp
    blabla - file1.rar
    this is - file2.rar
    another-file3.rar

    to
    x:\other folder\bla bla - file1
    etc.

    So I cud select and drop them elsewhere and hv them extracted in the above way.
    A kind of Create New Folder to extract to…

    Something like the below.

    why not just use extact with options? no need to drag and drop…



  • guess (optional) context menu items are faster?


  • conexware

    it would still load options screen though, where you would have to enter the file name you would want.



  • Yep. My current filehandler has these options (copy/move to). It works great. I drag and drop files to a subfolder, it autofills the path, you only need to insert the last folder name.

    Like:

    Well anyway… was just an idea.:)

    so you want Compress + Options, with preffiled path that is taken from drag and drop folder?



  • No, extract.
    The idea was: I have -say- 3 different zip/rar files in my downloadfolder, select them all, thén I want to use “Extract to \filename”, but then in a different folder (e.g. temp).

    I guess the easiest way (minimum of mouseclicks) wud be by drag and drop them into \temp whilst using the extract to \filename

    When I do this now, select 3 files, drag drop them elsewhere, I have the flwg items in my context menu

    • extract here
    • extract to x\folder\filename\

    However, in this case, filename are not 3 separate folders, but just 1.

    yeah, i meant extract… long day at the office 😉



  • No problem, but I guess my suggestion still stands then? 🙂

    I.e. select different single (not a part-set) archive files, drag-and-drop them elsewhere and to be extracted as single archives. Same as extract to \filename, but then in a different folder.
    thanks.


  • conexware

    you want extract with options, with prepopulated extract to field (with drag and drop destination entered there).



  • yep. like in my below posting with the little screendump, where ‘move’ obviously shd be replaced by ‘extract’.
