Hamster Lite Archiver
Full user review
"Simple with right-click menu & fast"
Extracts zip, rar, etc.
Extensive right-click menu: here folder of choice, folder with compressed file's name, add to compression archive
Minor complaint: Can't select multiple compressed files and extract "here" with one click.
Just what I wanted! Right click on a compressed filename or icon (zip, rar, etc.) or right-click-drag and there's a menu item [among other choices] that says "Extract here" and it's free!
I previously liked J-Zip with Win XP but ever since I've had a Win 7 computer, J-Zip is not user friendly and doesn't give a menu when I right clip on a compressed file.
Hamster, when right clicking on a file name has 4 menu choices:
Extract to... [you then select the folder location]
Extract here [extracts to folder compressed file is in or to folder you drag to: What I want!]
Extract to THIS FOLDER\NAME OF ZIP FILE FOLDER
Send to Compressbox [a box that appears on the screen and you can drag files to when creating a compressed file to zip or 7z].
And it's about twice as fast a J-Zip.
