    "Extract All" option is missing. How do I restore it?


    I have a Surface Pro that's running Windows 8.1 Pro. The compress option is available but the extract all is not.

    Is there a way to get the "Extract All" back?

    Thanks,

    Hello Nina, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'll look into it, but for now, if you open the .zip file, do you have the "Extract all" option in the ribbon in the Extract tab?

    Ok Nina. I tracked it down in the registry. If you like, you can download and merge the .reg file below in the tutorial below to restore "Extract All" to the context menu of .zip files.

Hi guys, what do I do if the refresh install on W8.1 says that I'm missing files? I installed W8 from a retail disc and upgraded to 8.1 via Windows Update. I can't use the W8 disc, it says invalid media. Do I just follow the steps shown on the tutorial here? Thanks.
