One interesting feature of the application is the ability to moved here change what happens when you double-click archives. The default action is to open Bandizip to display the contents of the archive. You can change that however so that the archive gets extracted automatically for instance instead. As far as customizations go, there are quite a few that make life easier for you. Here is a short list: Configure what is displayed in the context menu and what is not. Option to open the folder of an extracted archive after the operation completes. Handling of long path names that exceed 260 characters. Command line support.

bandizip Here's how it worked: With 7-Zip installed on my laptop, I right clicked on the first of the Solaris iso.zip files. I then: selected 7-Zip -> Open Archive to open the iso.tar file double-clicked on the iso file opened the Solaris_10 folder opened the Product folder and looked through the package folders (e.g., SUNWfbc, SUNWfchba and so on) until I found the one I needed. Now that's a handy tool! For zip and gzip files, 7-Zip's compression ration is said to be 2-10% better than what is provided by PKZip and WinZip. It also offers AES-256 encryption for 7z and ZIP formats should you need it. 7-Zip works in Windows 98, ME, NT, 200, XP (I use XP Professional) and Vista. It was a 2007 winner in the SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards for both Best Project and Best Technical Design. I found it to be both quick and reliable.
