RAR File Open Knife
As the name implies, RAR File Open Knife is an application that focuses on opening archive files with the RAR format. It comes bundled with plenty of configuration settings for all user levels.
After a brief installation procedure, you are greeted by a standard window with a well-defined layout, where you can use the "drag and drop" method or file browser to add RAR items to be extracted.
Alternatively, you can pick an entry from the context menu or just double-click any RAR file, since the program automatically makes file associations.
It is possible to extract files to the same location as the corresponding archive, or to a custom one, as well to create a new subfolder for each archive and to open the target location automatically when the task is done.
In addition, you can set a default password to be used when attempting to open protected archives, point out a passwords list, as well as make the app try to open files by using the archive name as the password. Furthermore, you can hide the "Welcome" and "Unrar" dialogs at program startup.\
RAR File Open Knife offers multilingual support, has a good response time and swiftly unpacks RAR archives while barely using CPU and system memory, so it doesn't affect the computer's overall performance. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the app did not hang or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, RAR File Open Knife can be handled by all types of users.
