Having just ONE voice shown for "compress to ??? + options"



  • now we can only choose, by checking the little box, whether we want the “compress to ??? + options” option in the context menu…but selecting it will add as many voices as the number of compressing types we chose to have…

    while I’d just like to be able to have just ONE more voice, not many!

    what do you think?

    thank you!



  • You click onto Options and Configuration… and then to the Section “Shell Extension”! “Use Extensions” must be marked–and here you can change the settings for explorer Shell Extensions…
    i hope a helped…



  • I think you mis-understood.
    manuangi is asking for the Options to be a single choice

    i.e.

    1. Compress to fil.zip
    2. Compress to fil.cab
    3. Compress to fil.7z
    4. Compress with Options

    Then (new) option 4 is used to access the format and the relevant options for that format.
    Currently, Options adds a new menu choice for each format.

    RIGHT, man! 😉

    don’t you think it would be a nice choice?

    @developers: any chance to have such a feature in the future? pleeeeeeeeease! 🙂



  • Just goto to Configuration->Shell ext. and deselect the things you don’t want.

  • guido, you seem not to have understood what I mean…

    if I check Display “Compress to ??? + Options” item then ONE voice for EVERY compression type I chose will be added.
    So, as the picts in my 1st post show, if originally I had 3 voices in the menu, I’ll have 6.

    What I’d like is the possibility to just have 4: the 3 I originally chose plus JUST ONE MORE, something like “Compress with Options” suggested by TBGBe.

    I can’t achieve that with actual PA’s option, can I…



  • You were right. I misunderstood your your question. But I think at the moment it’s not possible what you want. But I agree, I think it’s usefull…

  • @spwolf…any possibility to have this developed in the future? thanks!



  • many months have gone since I last posted here…but nothing has been done to solve this “sort of” bug (at least, it’s quite annoying to have a chilometric win context menu, because of all those “copmpress to XXX + options” voices)…

    any possibility, for the coming versions?



  • it would be nice to have a winzip feature shell extension configure where it takes you to the option so you don’t have to load up pa all the time to get to the option when you don’t really want to.



  • up 🙂


  • conexware

    bug eh? :-). Few more weeks….



  • @spwolf:

    bug eh? 🙂

    I know you like that word! 😃 ok, that’s a wish! 😃

    Few more weeks….

    really? Thank you!!! 🙂



  • THANK YOUUUUUU! 🙂 🙂

    this wish of mine has come true! 🙂

    Now, I can see just a “Compress With Options…” voice, not those many!

    Just a little thing…in PA options, one must check the “Compress to ??? + Options” to have the “Compress With Options” voice shown…I think that checkbox in “Options” should go away, and we should have one, maybe @1st place, in “Menu Items”. No?

    Anyway, dev’s…thanks again! Now I like PA much more than before! 🙂

    Try it with only one or two formats active. You’ll see why it is this way 😉
    Sort of “half & half”.
