Viewing/Opening/Editing Files

PowerArchiver has the ability to view/open/edit the contents of a file that is compressed inside an archive. First, we need to open the TUTOR1.ZIP Archive.

From the PowerArchiver toolbar, select the „Open“ option to open the TUTOR1.ZIP file.

Now, double click on a file you want to view/open and PowerArchiver will automatically start the program associated with that file, such as Notepad for text files.

Updating edited files

With new versions of PowerArchiver, you have ability to update a file that you opened in case you edited it while it was open. After you change a file that you have opened, PowerArchiver will ask you if you want to update the archive with that saved file. This way you can edit files inside an archive quickly and easily.

Please Note

This tutorial approaches the topic using the main PowerArchiver window as its base of operations. Classic interface is used to explain basic usage - if you are using Modern interface, you can change it to Classic interface by going to the Options tab and clicking on the Interface button.
