Act On File Windows Compatibility Seals

This section discusses the Decompress Archives functionality of the Compressor module.
The Decompress Archives functionality decompresses one or more archives with a single action without explicitly opening the archive(s). After one selects the archives that they want to decompress (expand) in Windows Explorer, they simply invoke the Decompress Archives functionality from the Act On File context menu. If required, they may make changes to the settings, but depending on the use of the functionality this may not be required. After any adjustments are made to the selected archives and properties, one simply clicks the OK button and waits for the process to complete its work. The Decompress Archives functionality allows the user to expand archives with just one click.

Decompress Archives


To decompress archives, you need to select the archives to be decompressed by placing them into the selected items control of the Decompress Archives functionality. Enter the decompression path if it is not entered (e.g. it could have been selected during the invocation of the functionality). If there is more than one selected archive, you can request that each archive be extracted into its own folder and given the same name as the archive. Adjust any other required settings and click OK to start the process of decompression. The internal directory structure of the archive(s) is preserved in the decompressed folder(s).
