Current Folder in Extract dialog



  • It would be helpful if there would be a way to go directly to the current directory of the compressed file.

    Often enough a compressed file is already where it has to be uncompressed. But one needs to check the file first to see if it has directory/path names in it, and if not, one may want to create a New Folder first. So the Extract Here shell extension can’t always be used.

    If the Extract dialog would have an additional button or an extra line in the Extract to: pull down to go to the compressed file’s current directory, one can easily take it from there instead of needing to click several drives and folders to get there.

    I hope this hasn’t been requested before. I looked through the wishlist and couldn’t immediately find it.

    Kind regards

    I might have a good idea for it, thanks…
    As usual, you could use extract to filename/ as an easy solution to the problem



  • Yes and no.

    What you propose would indeed always work, but:

    • if the archive already contained a folder (with that name or an other), you’d have two folders;
    • if the archive doesn’t containe a folder, one is limited to the name of the archive as the name for the folder and one may need to rename the folder later on.
      In each case, it would be a two step process, wouldn’t it?

    Thank you for taking it into consideration.
