Show also "Compress to Zip" if MULTIPLE ZIP archives are selected



  • Show also “Compress to Zip” if MULTIPLE ZIP archives are selected

    Sometimes there is a need to compress multiple archives at once through the Windows Explorer



  • I agree.



  • Selecting multiple zip files does give “Compress to …” option.
    Why do you want a specific “format” option and why only ZIP ?

    Multiple Zip into Zip doesn’t make sense - choose TAR or 7z
    Unless you want spanned files - but now you must choose FileSize
    😕

    that makes sense…either ok for all archive formats, or for none…



  • of course my suggestion should work for all archives 😉



  • Err …
    Options / Configuration / Shell Extensions / “Compress to … (for archives)”
    😃



  • but if you select multiple archives in Windows Explorer, the compress to dialogs are away. You just see the extract dialogs



  • That single Compress is there for me 😕

    Edit: forgot screenshot

    found the option now …
    had to look below the compress to group.
    The “Err…” was quiete confusing to me 😉

    Yes, the options are grouped by “working with filetypes” and not by option function.

    So “Test” and “Compress to” are together for working with archive files (as is FTP and Email).
    Note also that the encrypt / Compress and encrypt options are together.
    The only exception is the “convert” option - not sure why :p

    Sorry, that was really intended for Klumy. 😃
