    File Explorer & Extracter


    It seems I am not getting an "Extract Here" or "Extract to" option on my windows eight. Any aid would be great. Even when I've used other Unzippers, it doesn't work. Thank you for your time.

    Those are options I see with 7-Zip, not the built in zip handler of Windows 8.1.

    Well, I've used it before several times. I've had this laptop for a year and never had that program before and it still worked that way. Or someone's messed with my stuff, but I doubt that as I have no children or siblings living with me. Either way, even when I did get 7-Zip it did not work for one reason or another.

    Found the issue, had to run 7-Zip as admin. Still wish I knew why the windows thing isn't working though. o,o Thanks anyway.
