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?
Although the priority of compression programs is to do just that compress I’m just wondering if the team maybe has any thoughts on giving PA a makeover as other programs namely cough winrar cough have done recently.
granted PA is very easy on the eyes and easy to use but do you guys think a slight tweak in the toolbar department or creation of toolbars by members could be a possibility in the near future?
at the moment the creating of the skins is a little limited to say the least.
just thought I’d pose the question…
I for one would like to throw a few skins forward if the opportunity ever arose.

It already is a possibility.
Note: You don’t have to be a member.
yes I know it can already be done…but it just seems a little outdated and restricted in the manner that it is done compared to others.
I’ve experimented with both programs recently and I have to say winrar is a little more flamboyant in it’s appearance these days which of course doesn’t appeal to all users but it is another nice option to have for those that want to explore the skinning side of programs.
anyway…I just thought I’d ask the question in regards to the standard of graphics/icon design being improved upon these days.
It all depends on how good is the look of toolbar skins/themes, thats what WR does now and what PA has done for quite a while now (4 yrs? or more?).
Of course, 9.5 will do even more :-), but we gonna wait for few more weeks for that to be shown :-).
Just thought I’d bump this little topic with a screenshot of a toolbar I’m currently using thanx to some fun icons I obtained.
hopefully the later releases of PA will let us perhaps improve on this even more.
sorry for the bump!.
