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)
Show full path in PA window
“Show full path in PA window” option
currently PA just show the filename in the PA window
PowerArchiver 2000 - test.zip
But showing like this would be also very useful
PowerArchiver 2000 - c:\test\test.zip
e.g. if you have 2 archives with the same name in different folders

yes, that’d be useful!
I hope this will be supported in one of the next versions
It is jsut a small function, but IMO very useful, especially if you compress multiple archives at once
I’m quite happy with that as long as it’s an option. I prefer seeing just the file name.
On a similar vain, I wish the grey bar below the toolbar would shorten the path when using a system folder, so:
C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Stephen\Eigene Dateien\Archive.zip
