In a folder with the same name as the archive, so as not to lose the required document among many files
In the current folder – the files will be unpacked without creating a separate folder in the category in which the archive itself is located
If you select “Extract files”, a window will open where you can specify the path to extract files.
How to change the language
In order to avoid difficulties with packing and unzipping documents, images or other files, the application should work in the language that is understandable to the user. We recommend purchasing the program in Russian, so as not to spoil important documents or accidentally delete photographs of memorable events.
If the interface of your archiver is in English or any other language, then you have acquired a non-Russian-language license. To use WinRAR with a Russian-language menu, you need to purchase a license in Russian. The ability to change the interface languages is only available in a portable (mobile version) program.
How to put a password on the WinRAR archive
For privacy settings, you need to make an archive with documents by clicking “Add to Archive”. Then, in the menu item “Set Password”, you will need to enter secret characters, repeat them to confirm, and then click “OK” to compress the encrypted archive. To protect documents securely, check the box “Encrypt file and folder names” so that the names cannot be viewed.
Some categories of documents must be moved confidentially so that they can not be read by unauthorized persons. In this case, setting a password in the archive will be indispensable.
How to unlock WinRAR archive
If you transfer encrypted archives to others, which they need to view, be sure to send a password. There are no other methods to unlock the archive, except for the correct introduction of the secret code.
You can unlock the archive by opening the program and selecting a document, or by clicking on the “Extract to current folder” folder and entering the required password. Do not forget: you can set a password on both zip and rar archive formats, however, using rar will make it possible to encrypt not only documents, but also folder sizes, their names and comments.
