Extracting files from many different file types

One of the nice features of WinRAR is that it can extract files from so many different formats. Files that you can extract from includes (but not limited to) including CAB, LZH, TAR, GZ and TAR.GZ, BZ2 and TAR.BZ2, UUE, JAR (Java Archive), ISO (ISO9660 – CD image), 7Z. There is a hidden feature that may or may not be widely known – you can extract exe archives. Yes that right, if you have an archive that is a compressed exe file that unpacks itself when you run it and you just want to extract one file out of it without unpacking everything and hunting around, you can do that. Also you can create self-extracting archives as well – great for when you are sending files to people who may not have WinRAR installed.

WinRAR is easier to use than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special “Wizard” mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure. This avoids confusion in the early stages of use.

WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 256 bits.

WinRAR supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. The number of archived files is, for all practical purposes, unlimited.

WinRAR is ideal for multimedia files. WinRAR automatically recognizes and selects the best compression method. The special compression algorithm compresses multimedia files, executables and object libraries particularly well.

WinRAR allows you to split archives into separate volumes easily, making it possible to save them on several disks for example.

Operating system support and language support

RAR and WinRAR are Windows 10 ™ compatible, available in over 50 languages in both 32bit and 64bit and several operating systems (OS) and the only compression software that is fully accepted in all countries using Unicode.

WinRAR – What’s new in the latest version:

Version 5.91

  1. Dialogs are centered inside of WinRAR window similarly to WinRAR 5.80
      and not inside of entire screen as in WinRAR 5.90.

  2. When editing an archived file with external software, extra measures
      are taken to reduce the probability of interfering with editor
      and opening its temporary files while editor still may need them.

  3. “Version to extract” field in archive properties opened from
      Windows Explorer context menu provides the additional information
      about ZIP compression and encryption algorithms, such as LZMA or AES.
      This information was already available in WinRAR “Info” command,
      but missed in archive information accessible from Windows Explorer.

  4. “MS DOS” and “Unix” host OS types are recognized and included
      for LZH archives in “Info” command. Previously the host OS field
      was always “Unknown” for LZH archive format.

  5. Files created by external editor and matching “Settings/Viewer/
      Ignore modifications for” masks are never added to archive.
      Previously WinRAR still added them if some file not matching
      these masks was also created or modified.

  6. Bugs fixed:

      a) empty file names were displayed inside of some Unix LZH archives;

      b) WinRAR could not process more than 999 7z volumes in a single set;

      c) if user cancelled the user account control prompt after changing
        “Integrate WinRAR into shell” option, a new state of this option
        was displayed in “Settings” dialog, even though the actual state
        of shell integration was not modified;

      d) the main window size could be too small on the first run after
        clean install with no previous WinRAR version present;

      e) WinRAR could stop responding after editing an archived file
        with external software in Windows 10 version 2004.
