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?
PA - Ribbon - Developer's Tab

I’ve had a think about this and i would love to see this implemented within PowerArchiver Ribbon.
In Microsoft Office 2007/10 you can enable a Developer’s Tab this by default is hidden.
Now what i suggest is PowerArchiver create’s a page in the configuration screen that enables users to create there very own Tab and call it whatever they like!
So i could create next to the default “Options” or the “Home” tabs “Richard” and with that tab i could select default buttons and options relivant to what i as a user or administrator use most if not all of the time.
Therefore, it is profile specific, so i can have my FTP Livedrive as default, i could have my Backup jobs and not my partners or collegues, I can display, convert, encrypt, DVD Burn and nothing else if i wanted all with my own preferred settings in the layout i want.
You could even provide the ability to save this and provide a drop down so users can create there own custom tabs. so when Dan my assistant wants his settings he just selects them and maybe enters a password.
Now i already do this in my work enviroment and it is very popular with the end users. I created a tick box system and a named combo box this then creates a tempory Tab with settings.
There isnt anything highly complicated as the tools are already setup, all you are doing is creating a Skeliton code structure than runs off values from what the user enters or selects.
I hightly beleave this would be a great feature of powerarchive and really beleave this would work, giving PA something that others dont currently provide!!
You asked for ideas that would make PA even more atractive, this is one of them.
