Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, this free file compression tool makes it a snap to unzip files.
The Extractor opens with a panel-style interface that is clear-cut enough for all users to understand. We especially liked the drag-and-drop functionality that let us quickly add ZIP and RAR files. We also like that the user specifies the output file. Once we clicked Go, the program instantly unzipped our file and placed the contents into our designated output folder. Our favorite feature was the Preset option that let us assign a preset task for each output folder after unzipping the file. The preset tasks included keeping folders, subfolders, and covers. If you don't want to assign presets, you can manually apply the same folder options. The Help feature is pretty simplistic and doesn't have search capabilities, but it does walk you through the program.
The fact that this functional file compression program is freeware makes it all the more appealing. We recommend it for all user levels. It cleanly uninstalled from our PC.
