I use some services from sites like audio books from ChristianAudio.com and graphics from Gracewaymedia.com that deliver content by ZIP files. Extracting the content from each ZIP file can be a tedious time waster. I found a free program called ExtractNow is that makes it very easy to extract files
ExtractNow is a simple utility that allows you to extract multiple archives quickly and easily. ExtractNow is not a complete archival solution. It’s main purpose is to allow the user to extract multiple archives easily.
“Why wear out your clicking finger extracting files one by one when you can extract at once? ExtractNow does a fine job of bundling compressed files and extracting their contents in one fell swoop. ExtractNow has a clean, well-designed and easy-to-use interface. To extract files, simply drag and drop them into the main program window, or right-click the files while in Windows Explorer. ExtractNow supports the two most popular compression formats, ZIP and RAR, as well as a handful of other formats. Simple but not simplistic, this is a powerful and reliable program that will be of use to anyone who manages many compressed files.”
