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?
Resizing PAES (minor request)
I appears that the user cannot resize the PAES window (well, at least this user can’t).
It would be nice to resize it so the word/pdf options are not off the visible screen.
you are starting the exe directly or?
Yes. I have shortcuts to For PACloud, PAES, and Burner on my desktop. PAES has more options clearly available than opening the ES via the PA Window.
If I click and drag on the edges, seems to resize properly.
How are you performing the resize and it does not work?
Let me know, I’ll give it a try
Doesn’t do that for me on either computer (7 and 8). I can just close it, close it while holding shift, close it while hold Ctrl, or close it by closing Ctrl-shift.
I suppose once again my computers are acting different than yours.
I also tried it with and without run as administrator.
What’s odder, on my laptop the default is to open maximized, even though in the shortcut properties I have it set to open as a “Normal window.”
When I install PA, should I – or should I not — run the exe as administrator.
and on a different matter. I was curious about my question concerning Richard’s post. Dokes PAES encrypt word files using its own encryption engine? Or word’s?
Here’s a short video that shows how the PAES window resize works in this case.
Let me know if I’m doing something differently. Thanks!
I was unclear. I apologize. [embarrassed emoticon] I assume you knew I knew how to resize. the problem is getting the new size to stick once I close and reopen.
With most programs. If you resize, then close while holding down one of the control keys (Ctrl, Shft, Alt, or sometimes a combo), it will stick.
For me, anyway, it won’t stick. Next session, I have to manually resize it.
Indeed, the window size is not saved. Checked all of the other apps and window size is properly saved, as the PAES window also should be, so logging this in.
Thanks again Socrates! :)
sorry I was unclear the first time. My bad.
BTW, this is not pressing . . . but could you give me some guidance on the two questions in #6 above?
Fixed in version 15. Thanks, Mili.
