The Unarchiver

By Dag Agren

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

The Unarchiver is a small and easy to use program that can unarchive many different kinds of archive files. It will open common formats such as Zip, RAR (including v5), 7-zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip2. It will also open many older formats, such as StuffIt, DiskDoubler, LZH, ARJ and ARC. It will even open other kinds of files, like ISO and BIN disc images, some Windows .EXE installers. The list is actually much longer - see the program homepage for the full list.

The Unarchiver also tries to detect and correctly handle the filename encoding in the archives it opens, allowing you to open files from every part of the world without getting garbled filenames.

The Unarchiver aims to be the only unarchiving program you will ever need, and to stay out of your way.

However, if you want to browse the contents of archives, or if you want to support development of The Unarchiver, look for "The Archive Browser" on the Mac App Store, or go to http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/! It lets you browse and preview archive contents, and find out information about archives!

Also, if you need to open archives on your iPad or iPhone, look for "Archives" on the App Store, or go to http://archives.c3.cx/. It is based on The Unarchiver, and lets you easily handle Archives on iOS!

Super!

Werkt helemaal naar behoren! Geen klachten over.

Preferences screen can’t be dismissed

When opeing the app it pops up the Preferences screen, where you suppose to select/deselect fileformats, and it will stay open. Only you can’t choose the fileformats. It has some gray overlay with white text instructions how to set the app as default app through Get Info on files individually. Quite obsolete since the filesformats were apparently already set to open with this app by default during the installation. I mean, they do open this app in Finder. The "Select all” and “Deselect all” buttons do not work in this Preferences screen. Under Windows menu the Preferences can’t be hidden. And closing the popup will close the entire app. Very dumb and annoying. Other then that, it seems to do its work.
And reporting this to support? … you’ll get directed to some weird support forum where it’s just very unclear how to report or find anything.

Using Macbook Pro macOS Sierra 10.12.2.
