Using Drag and Drop to Extract

One of the many ways to extract files from an archive is by using the drag and drop interface:

  1. Open an archive using PowerArchiver.
  2. Click on a file in the archive through the main PowerArchiver window and, while holding down the left mouse button, drag the file to the Windows Explorer, Desktop, or a printer.
  3. Release left mouse button to extract the file from the archive.

Please Note

If you drop files on another application or on a shortcut, the files are extracted to the Temp folder before the files are passed to the application, and will be removed from the Temp folder when the archive is closed.
