Tutorial - How to Extract RAR Files?
IntroductionWindows OS always has built-in archive manager that is only able to deal with ZIP files, but not RAR files. Luckily, Free RAR Extractor Elite is a very easy RAR extractor application that can swiftly unzip RAR files to get what you want out of them, saving them to the designated folder. It's the fastest solution for RAR decompression.
Launch Free RAR Extractor Elite. In "General" tab, click
the "Browse" button to input one or more RAR files. If you want
to input all RAR files in a designated directory, check "Folder:
Includes sub-fold" and then click "Browse" to specify the directory.
Step 1. Input RAR
Step 2. Choose Output PathNow you should choose where you want to save the extracted files. In "Destination Path" you can choose to save the extracted files to the default output folder, the folder where the original RAR is stored or any folder you specified.
(Note: for more convenient management and searching of the extracted files and folders, we suggest that you check "Append archive name to output path".)
Step 3. Start ExtractionNow you can hit "Extract" to start the process. In a few seconds all the files in RAR archives will be extracted. To open the output folder, click "Target".
(Note: if you want to extract an RAR with password protection, you have to enter the password after clicking "Extract". The checkbox of "Open output folder after extracting" is ticked by default and the extractor will automatically open the output folder when the decompression is finished.)
Step 4. Advanced SettingsThere are also some settings you can tweak in "Advanced" tab:
You can decide to if you want to keep the original folder structure, remove redundant folders in RAR files, or display a dialog when finished.
By default the checkbox of "Restore File Attributes" is ticked, making it possible to keep the original date, category, comment, etc. You are also allowed to customize date attribute.
It provides an editable exclusion list of file types that you don't want to extract.
